Miss the Workshop? Watch the wrap up video!
You better not be acting like you're in a Wes Anderson film at the EdTech Workshop...
If you're unfamiliar with the social media trend, have a look at the Wes Anderson Trend compilation video.
We sure are! For this year's recap video of the EdTech Workshop, we wanted to try something a little different from previous years (you can watch the 2021 and 2019 videos, too!). The backstory - in April, content creator Ava Williams started a new trend on social media when she posted a quick travel video produced in the style of Wes Anderson. Anderson is the director of such films as Life Aquatic and The Grand Budapest Hotel and his work is distinct in its look, feel, and sound.
Review the Workshop Details
- When did the 2023 Workshop take place?
The EdTech Workshop 2023: CTRL+Shift occurred on May 17, 2023 in the Myhal Building.
- What's the story behind this year's theme?
Hosted by the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, the EdTech Workshop 2023: CTRL +shift is a one-day, in person event featuring informal sessions (demonstrations, case studies, panels, etc.) led by instructors and staff from across the three U of T campuses. This year's theme, CTRL +Shift, is a play on using the modifier keys on a standard keyboard (sorry Mac users, these are Windows shortcuts). For example, if you used CTRL +Shift + v, then you can paste without any formatting, keeping only the text (removing the extraneous and keeping what you need). If you used Ctrl + Shift + N, you could create a new folder to store files (a digital place for new ideas). The EdTech Workshop 2023 provides a space and place to discuss identifying your own essentials, how/if your values have "shifted" (the theme has metaphorical and literal aspects), and how to achieve them effectively and efficiently.Who is this event for? If you are a member of U of T's teaching and learning community, or would like to learn more about education technology use, this one day workshop is for you!Have a few questions? See if someone else also had that question by reviewing our EdTech Workshop 2023 Frequently Asked Questions blog post. It covers why we're not offering a hybrid event, when video recordings will be available, and how to volunteer. And more, of course!
