Bonnie Stewart's TEACHxperts Sessions

One might think that learning experientially—or more simply, learning hands-on, through doing and reflecting—is only compatible with digital learning in the context of computer science or other technology-centered disciplines. But Bonnie Stewart, Assistant Professor of Online Pedagogy and Workplace Learning at the University of Windsor, has centered her teaching and scholarship at the intersection of digital and experiential education, and has integrated the theory and practice of these seemingly opposed approaches. Stewart publishes widely, gives keynotes at conferences around the world, and is probably better at Twitter than you.

Teaching & Learning Technologies is pleased to welcome Bonnie Stewart for two TEACHxperts sessions on Friday, November 30. The first is a noon brown bag presentation, the second is a 3 p.m. workshop on building participatory practices, and both will be held in the Ver Steeg Lounge of Northwestern Library in Evanston.

What does it mean to engage in open professional teaching and learning practices, in an era defined by fake news and data surveillance?

How can meaningful, mindful digital practices be scaffolded for students and faculty in today’s institutions?

Stewart’s TEACHxperts presentations begin with these questions and start with the premise that digital life is real life and networked spaces cannot be separated from physical ones. Leveraging both her research and teaching experience, this session explores digital teaching and learning as experiential learning, and proposes some hands-on experiential paths to building learner-centered, community-oriented approaches to knowledge creation and media navigation.

We hope to see you there. Please register and join us.
