Rediscover the Document Camera
Wednesday, April 15 • 9–10 a.m.
Document cameras have been installed in classrooms for years, but they get little use. These tools make it easy for you to bring new materials into your class without digitizing anything. They also provide glimpses of objects that would be very difficult to show in class. Find out all the ways a document camera can be used and discover if this hidden gem can be an asset to your class. Facilitated by Doug Smith, director of Learning Spaces and Audio/Visual Technologies.
Global Citizenship and Critical Literacy

Fell Hall 212
In this workshop, Karen Pashby, postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Global Citizenship Education and Research at the University of Alberta, shares some pedagogical tools for engaging in a critical approach to global citizenship education. A critical approach starts from a reflexive ethics and encourages learners to engage with the tensions and complexities that define global realities. In the workshop, participants have a chance to apply these pedagogical tools to deepen their understanding of global citizenship education and to consider ways to infuse a critical approach in their practice. Seating is limited.
