“The Teaching & Learning Commons is proud to host KPU’s inaugural Digital Pedagogy Webinar Series, featuring six exceptional and internationally-renowned speakers who each bring deep expertise and a unique perspective on pedagogy in this digital age. Digital Pedagogy is not about teaching online as much as it is about using digital tools from a critical pedagogical perspective. Accordingly, through this year’s series we will critically explore topics including digital literacies, creativity, privacy perils, and inclusion.”
