April 26 & 27

Centre for Teaching & Learning and Student Services

invite you to come together virtually at this build-your-own conference. Hear from colleagues who have engaged in unique ways to build student agency throughout the pandemic. In a diverse teaching and learning community, there are many interpretations and experiences of student agency. It may not even be a concept translatable in different languages or circumstances. Discuss opportunities to continue to build on student success in the coming academic year.

The concept of Student Agency is based on the idea that students:

  • can play a more active role in their education, becoming co-creators in the teaching and learning process;
  • have the ability and the will to positively influence their own lives and the world around them.

We are excited to offer three fantastic Keynote Speakers:

  • Dr. Deena Kara Shafer, Coordinator of Student Transition and Retention at Ryerson University and the President of the Learning Specialist Association of Canada will be presenting on The Agentic Body.
  • Leonard Geddes, Former Director, Lenoir-Rhyne University‚Äôs Lohr Learning Commons, Founder, The LearnWell Projects will be presenting on Doing Better Academic Work Together.
  • Dr. Joe Kim, Associate Professor in Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour at McMaster University and is actively involved in the science of teaching and learning will be presenting on The Psychology of Focusing on What Really Matters.

Engage with Mohawk College peers who are excited to share their work and ideas through over twenty peer lead workshops, a student panel, and so much more!
