This opening session of Educational Technologies Week comprises three segments:
- Donna Ellis (Director of CTE), Aldo Caputo (Director of CEL), and Andrea Chappell (Director of ITMS) will share their perspectives on the “journey” of teaching and learning at Waterloo over the past twelve months: the highlights, challenges, and noteworthy adaptations precipitated by the pandemic and the resultant pivot to remote teaching and learning. (Approximately 20 minutes)
- Nadine Ibrahim (Civil and Environmental Engineering), Zara Rafferty (Recreation and Leisure Studies), Kieran Bonner (Sociology and Legal Studies), and Anton Mosunov (Mathematics) will share new strategies or technologies that they’ve deployed in response to the constraints of remote teaching and learning, but which were so successful they might continue to employ them even when we return to campus. (Approximately 40 minutes)
- A Q & A segment. (Approximately 20 minutes).

The University of Waterloo is committed to achieving barrier-free accessibility for persons with disabilities who are visiting, studying, or working at Waterloo. CTE’s online workshops are delivered through either WebEx, Microsoft Teams, or Bongo with the audio component available either as captioning or a transcript. CTE’s face-to-face workshops typically involve a mix of presentation and discussion-based activities, and we encourage a scent-free environment. We welcome accompanying assistants, interpreters, and note-takers. If you have questions concerning access, such as parking, building layouts, or obtaining workshop content in alternative formats, or wish to request accommodations for our programming, please let us know by emailing email@example.com. Please note that some accommodations may require time to arrange.
