Today, we are absolutely thrilled to be able to offer our first-ever day of learning on coding and computational thinking for teacher candidates. This is possible because of a federal #CanCode grant to the Faculty of Engineering that has been shared with us in Education. Here are the slides we’ll be using through the day, just to give you a glimpse in the learning we will be doing throughout the day.
The second annual Canadian Institute for Digital Literacies Learning will take place from Tuesday, July 10 to Friday, July 13th, 2018. We are very excited to announce that the week will kick off with a special Day of Coding for Teachers on Monday July 9th. This intro to coding day for teachers, which we can offer FREE of charge thanks to federal grant funding, is open to all 2017 and 2018 Institute participants, teacher candidates at the University of Ottawa, graduate students and Alumni of our professional Teacher Education and Graduate Programs. We also invite any in-service teacher who would like to simply be a part of our University of Ottawa digital literacies learning community.
Because the Institute, which offers participants an intensive theme-focused learning experience with the support of local and national leaders, there is a registration fee (early bird $499 + HST). The fee ensures we can offer catered lunches, access to the best possible expertise on our theme focused topics, prizes and individualized learning support for the 2018-2019 academic year to anyone who needs it.
We hope that everyone who registers for the Institute will also join us for the Day of Code. There are two separate registration portals for these events.
Registration for the Canadian Institute for Digital Literacies Learning is open!
Registration for the Day of Code is also open now — please use access code #LNDLCA to reserve your spot!
