May 9 event celebrates academic innovation

The ways in which undergraduate students learn – and want to learn – are changing, according to speakers at an upcoming event celebrating academic innovation at York University.

On May 9, you are invited to join a celebration of innovation in teaching and learning at York University. You will hear colleagues discussing how a number of innovative eLearning, experiential education and first-year transition projects are improving the student experience at York.

Learn how they are using Skype to connect with students in a Burmese refugee camp, easing first-year students into university with an online enrolment appointment and course-based peer mentoring, and more.

The event will take place Wednesday, May 9, from 8:30am to 4pm, in the Tribute Communities Recital Hall, Accolade East Building on York’s Keele campus. You can register for one or both of the half-day sessions, there is no cost and the day promises to be inspiring, challenging and energizing.
