Hosted online via Zoom

As our immersion in digital environments grows, hacker culture has gone mainstream. In this workshop, you’ll come face-to-face with the world of student hacks: grassroots best practices, shortcuts, workarounds, and outright cheating. The questions we will try to answer: Can our courses gain something by leaning into the hacker ethos without compromising academic integrity? Can we steer students towards good hacks and away from the inefficient and the unethical? What does the rise of the classroom hack say about the relationship between our students, their learnings, and our courses?

This workshop is held online in three sessions:

Thursday, October 7: 9:00-10:30 AM Thursday, October 14: 9:00-10:30 AM Thursday, October 21: 9:00-10:30 AM

Registration for the first session serves as registration for the subsequent sessions.

The CAT will send a Zoom access link to this workshop via email one hour prior to the sessions.
