Event: IRC Future Ready Sessions

The Instructional Resource Centres are hosting a series of Future Ready Sessions for students, instructors and faculty. All sessions qualify for Experience Plus for students.

These 45-minute sessions will focus on exploring future-ready instructional resources available in the IRC as well as discussions of how these can be incorporated into classrooms. Future readiness and STEAM awareness are defining characteristics of the contemporary learner. The objective of these sessions is to prepare for the risk-taking, digital literacy and innovative instructional strategies required to serve future learners.

Sessions will take place in the IRC at each campus.
