ETUG Spring 2008 Workshop – CREATIVITY

Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design
Granville Island, Vancouver, BC
May 28 to 30, 2008

ETUG’s Spring 2008 Workshop took place at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design, situated on the dynamic and sensory-rich Granville Island. Taking the cue from the host site, the workshop theme was “Creativity.”

The workshop began with a Wednesday night networking social over a game of pool or Wii with ETUG colleagues. The following two days of workshop sessions  offered many thought-provoking and practical hands-on sessions encouraging individual creativity, practice using tools and techniques for creative expression, and what creativity means to the community of educational innovators and technology users. Featured topics on this multifaceted theme included sessions on digital storytelling, mind mapping, storyboarding, acting skills in the classroom, the creative brain, making digital videos, mobile content, The Horizon Report 2008, and a plenary panel discussion on “Assessing Creativity.”
