Event Description

In-person: UBCV

This event is part of the 2024 Celebrate Learning Week, taking place from May 6–10, 2024.

In this session, participants will create any one of: quick videos, cartoons, infographics, audio recordings, immersive experiences or interpretive dances. Participants will be tasked to create a product in 5 or 10 minutes that captures the essence of some important idea they have learned. The immediacy of the project draws on participants creativity and humour and releases groups from perfectionism and fear. Using AI would never even occur to participants. These messy funny creations are more memorable for both the creators and the viewers and make their points stick.
