The theme of "Change"
May 12th - 16th, 2013
5 day program (Sunday through Thursday)
We live in the midst of change: technological change, social change, political change, environmental change. In modern times humankind has experienced an unprecedented rapidity of change. How do we adapt, or not adapt... and what are the consequences? Students will consider the perspectives of scientists, engineers, writers, and philosophers, as they examine the dynamics of “Change”.
This two hour hands-on workshop will introduce you to Desire2learn (D2L)ePortfolio, a tool found within LEARN, our course management system.

NOTE: We do not have the facilities to print off résumés at the start of
the workshop. There is a prerequisite for this workshop. Please see chart
