OCAD U 2020 TEACHING EXPO

Challenging Our Assumptions: Towards More Inclusive Ways of Teaching and Learning

Friday, January 17th, 2020 9:00 am - 5:00 pm 113 McCaul St, Level 5

Registration is now open!

REGISTER HERE

Join us for this full-day event dedicated to reflecting upon our teaching and learning practices through workshops, presentations, facilitated discussions and demonstrations of class activities. This year’s theme invites you to consider how we, as educators, practitioners and scholars, need to challenge our assumptions—about our students, classrooms, disciplines, creative practices, institutional policies and ourselves.

Reflecting on our assumptions and perspectives will deepen our understanding of the multi-faceted and diverse histories and backgrounds of our learners, colleagues and institutional policies and practices. We will also engage in discussion and activities grounded in the principles of inclusive teaching and Universal Design for Learning, an approach to teaching and learning that values reflection and embeds equity, diversity and accessibility into our practices.

This year’s expo kicks off with a pre-conference workshop on Anti-Ableism and Universal Design by Dr. Jay Dolmage, Professor and Associate Chair of English at the University of Waterloo and Founding Editor of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies. There will be two offerings of the workshop the day before the expo, Thursday, January 16th.
