Digital Pedagogy Institute 2016
May 13, 2016, University of Guelph

The University of Toronto Scarborough Library, Brock University, Ryerson University, and the University of Guelph are pleased to announce the third iteration of the Digital Pedagogy Institute: May 13th, 2016. This year’s one-day symposium will immediately follow the DH at Guelph Summer Workshops at the University of Guelph campus.

Community-Facing Learning and Digital Pedagogy


Designing the Digital University: 
Materiality, Embodiment, and Mess

[abstract <https://www.uoguelph.ca/arts/losh_abstract>]

Dr. Liz Losh

Director of the Culture, Art & Technology program, Director of Academic Programs, Sixth College, University of California, San Diego. Author of The War on Learning: Gaining Ground in the Digital University (MIT Press)

Presenters include
Christine Berkowitz, Connie Guberman, Aimée Morrison, and Brian Sutherland

The theme of Community-Facing Learning explores how faculty and students promote and sustain strong teaching, learning, and/or research partnerships with the wider community beyond the university, including local and global communities and especially digital communities. It involves such diverse topics as connecting academic scholarship to the public commons; experiential and service learning; recontextualizing the university experience for the next generation of post-secondary students; cross-generational projects with young people and elders; interdisciplinary projects with academic units beyond the Humanities; projects partnering undergraduate and graduate students or universities and schools (K-20 education); and social justice pedagogy.

The overall goal of the one-day symposium is to circulate, discuss, and promote best practices related to the teaching of digital literacies and new research methodologies to undergraduate and graduate students. The symposium will open with the keynote by Dr. Losh, and comprise a blend of one-hour workshops/talks with lightning presentations and associated demonstrations of pedagogical experiments, interfaces, tools, projects, and research results. See the call for papers below.

About the Institute
The development of Digital literacy is increasingly a priority for undergraduate and graduate students and thus for the faculty who teach them. Emerging technologies are having an impact on the ways in which university research is currently conducted by scholars across all disciplines. There is an increasing reliance on digital tools and methods leading to innovative approaches to research and teaching. In part due to these developments, scholarship has taken on a much more collaborative nature, and there has been an increase in experimentation with new forms of research exploration and dissemination. New digital research methods require faculty and students to develop new skill sets.

The Digital Pedagogy Institute, hosted by UTSC Library, Brock, Ryerson, and Guelph Universities, will explore themes and issues related to Digital Pedagogy. In its third iteration, the symposium will continue to build on themes and issues discussed at the 2015 institute, including the intersection of Digital Pedagogy and the student experience, with a specific focus on the undergraduate level.

Call for papers

Long papers or workshops (1-hour sessions)
The Digital Pedagogy Institute Program Committee invites proposals from all disciplines (e.g., Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences) for individual long papers or workshops to be presented at the Institute. Student proposals are welcome. Please submit an abstract of 250-300 words (exclusive of bibliography) with a title, a brief biographical statement, and your contact information. If you are proposing a workshop provide some sense of the extent to which it will be hands-on, whether participants will need to be bring a computer or other device, and whether it will need to be held in a lab and require any software installation in advance (we have one computer lab available). Papers that cannot be accommodated in the program may be invited to present in the lightning presentation session.

Lightning Presentation + Posters/Demonstrations
The Institute will close with a lively session devoted to lightning presentations and posters or digital demonstrations. Presenters will start by using 2 minutes and no more than 2 slides to whet participants’ appetites for visiting their poster or digital demonstration of a tool, course, prototype, website, research outcome, or other projects related to digital pedagogy. Abstracts will also be distributed in advance. Following the presentations there will be alloted time for visiting the demonstrations or posters and for general social mingling.

Please submit an abstract of 250-300 words with a title, a brief biographical statement, and your contact information. Proposals should be sent to prousseau at utsc.utoronto.ca by April 8th, 2016. The Program Committee members who will review the submissions are Jason Boyd, Susan Brown, David Hutchison, Kim Martin, Pauline Rousseau (chair).
