April 15: Cookies + Conversation with Jeff Hopkins, Educator in Residence

Students, Staff and Faculty please join Jeff Hopkins, Educator in Residence, for his next Cookies + Conversation on Tuesday, April 15 from 1:30-2:30 pm in MAC 3rd Floor Lounge. Let's talk about ... What do we mean by “Personalized Learning”? Jeff will lead a discussion regarding how that buzz term has become very open to interpretation and how it is important to be specific when talking about personalization. This was a big topic at a meeting Jeff attended in New York a couple of weeks ago where international representatives from Finland, Brazil, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Colorado, NYC, and BC were struggling to find a common understanding of the term we have all been using for several years! It touches on worldview, philosophy, and beliefs about social change.

Welcome to Jeff Hopkins, Educator-in-Residence!

Jeff is our first Educator-in-Residence! He welcomes connections and conversations related to research and pedagogy. Jeff is available to visit your classes. If you would like to meet with Jeff on a one-to-one basis, please contact our Faculty Research Community office at facrescm@uvic.ca. Students, staff and faculty are welcome to join Jeff at his monthly Cookies + Conversation, which are scheduled for: April 15, May 20 and June 17.

We Haul 2 Play by Cyril Indome

We Haul 2 Play by Cyril Indome (B.Ed PE Class of 2012) "Since graduating from UVic PE in 2012, I have had an absolute blast learning and teaching. This year, I am teaching English 10 and Communications 11 at Sino Canada High School just outside of Shanghai. For the holidays, Paul Hayes (another UVic PE grad in 2009) and I are cycling through Laos delivering sports equipment to impoverished youth in the area. We cycle to a community, play games with the kids then let them keep the equipment. We have pictures and blog entries on our website: www.wehaul2play.com."
