        Subject: Digital Pedagogy Institute - August 19th - 21st,	2015 - Registration and Scholarships

Dear Colleagues,

Registration is now open for the second iteration of the Digital Pedagogy Institute (http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/conferences/dpi/), co-hosted by the University of Toronto Scarborough, Brock University, and Ryerson University, and supported by the generosity of a SSHRC Connections grant and Victoria Owen, UTSC Chief Librarian. This Institute will explore the potential impact that digital pedagogy has on student experience.

The Digital Pedagogy Institute will explore following topics:

•             How can digital research methodologies be used to improve student

learning and engagement?

•             What are the best methods for teaching students digital skills so that

they can actively participate in knowledge mobilization related to digital research? What instructional strategies have proven to be most successful?

•             What political and ideological decisions do educators (and institutions)

involved in digital scholarship make in planning their teaching and research?

•             How can faculty shift from transmitting knowledge to facilitating

collaborative learning, co-inquiring and co-learning with students via activity-centered projects?

It will consist of plenary sessions, informational sessions, panel discussions, as well as hands-on workshops involving digital tools for research and curriculum development. Presentations from those who have developed digital projects as part of curriculum will give participants insight into the integration of this skill set into the post-secondary context, and how this integration has the potential to ameliorate learning experience and job readiness.


The Digital Pedagogy Institute, made possible through great support from Victoria Owen, Chief Librarian - UTSC, Brock University, Ryerson University, and the generosity of a SSHRC Connections grant, is offering seven (7) $500 travel scholarship to the conference. In order to qualify:

  *   Students must be currently enrolled as a graduate student(exceptions will be made for undergrads) in a recognized post-secondary Institution.

  *   Preference will be given to speakers of successful proposals.
  *   Proposals must be received by July 30th, 2015.
