Pre-Conference Workshop M3
Transforming In-Person to Remote Activities: Setting the Stage for Improved Virtual Collaboration
Date Wednesday, Nov 23 Time – Room Charlottenburg I Price: 90.00 € Status: fully booked
Program Coordinator, Biomedical Visualization and Communication Certificate, University of British Columbia, Canada
Bailey Lo, BSc, is the Program Coordinator for the UBC Biomedical Visualization and Communication (BMVC) certificate and is a member of the Hackspace for Innovation and Visualization in Education (HIVE).
Bailey's career started out in pursuit of becoming a healthcare provider, training as a paramedic and later studying midwifery. However, Bailey is most at home when supporting other learners to succeed and engage with their studies and transitioned from healthcare to education. She's passionate about making biomedical knowledge accessible to students from any background and believes a classroom—virtual or not—should be a place of empowerment and self-discovery.
Bailey holds a Bachelor of Science from Queen's University, Canada and is currently a student in the Master of Educational Technology program at UBC, Canada.
assistant professor, The University of British Columbia, Canada
I am an Assistant Professor co-appointed with UBC Theatre and Film and at the Master of Digital Media Program in Vancouver Canada, teaching, mentoring, supervising graduate and undergraduate students, and conducting research on phenomena related to the experiences of extended realities. Every course that I teach has some element of project-based learning that is integrated either on its own or in collaboration with other courses and colleagues. I have mentored/supervised over 200 graduate students on 45 client-based digital media projects, many of them Mixed Reality Projects. My current teaching, workshopping and project supervision within immersive technologies, creativity, sound, human-centered design and improvisation can be defined as Mixed Reality and virtual experiences.
In all project-based learning courses, my goal is to support learners in developing 21st Century skills and competencies that continue to build on their innate capacities to be creative, collaborative and manage their own learning. Learner interactions are informed by ongoing research into collaborative practices, project-based learning, mentoring, self-regulation, rapid prototyping, agile software development, and a commitment to bridging the gap between what I design and teach, with what is requested by a rapidly changing, team-based digital media industry.
Professor of Teaching, UBC Faculty of Medicine, Canada
Dr. Claudia Krebs is a Professor of Teaching at the University of British Columbia where she teaches neuroanatomy and gross anatomy. She has a keen interest in working with emerging technologies to leverage their potential for the classroom. In 2017 she created the HIVE (Hackspace for Innovation and Visualizations in Education) - a multidisciplinary space for innovation in biomedical education. She has received numerous teaching awards and in 2021 she was named a Fellow of the American Association for Anatomy, a recognition of the broad impact her work has had on the anatomy community.
In this 3-hour facilitated workshop, participants will engage with in-person activities that will then be transposed to a remote online environment. Each activity is intended to support team-based work and includes brainstormed activities to build common cultural values, rules of play between team members to support equity, diversity, and inclusion and a variety of activities to enhance listening.
These activities are based on techniques used in the curriculum for the Biomedical Visualization and Communication certificate, a fully online programme offered by the University of British Columbia Extended Learning.
Finally, a series of role-play scenarios will be facilitated, and a customised artificially intelligent “bot” will be presented along with a report on student responses to the improv AI bot and future development plans.
In this workshop participants will:
- Recall remote activities that were successful in their teaching.
- Evaluate in-person tools that were transformed to remote teaching environments.
- Synthesise workshop content and apply it to their own teaching practice.
