[Spring Workshop 2010] Program

3 Cup of TETUG’s  Spring Workshop 2010 held at the University of Victoria, June 7 and 8 was a great success. Link to the Crowdvine site where we’ve shared resources.
Description of our workshop in the original announcement:
Our theme is “3 Cups of T: Teaching, Technology, Transformation”. This alludes to the bestseller, “Three Cups of Tea” – an inspiring story of a brave, pioneering educator in a hostile situation who, against great odds, makes a big difference in the world. He did this in small increments, by working “failures” into successes, and by learning to really listen and consider stakeholders and their needs. The power of patience and building relationships in order to innovate and bring about change are themes we can relate to in our work in education and technology. Not to mention, our workshop is taking place in Victoria, BC (a high-tea hotspot). It will be a tea-riffic event!
Come share  your challenges and triumphs with teaching with technology and views on system trends and changes
