The Guelph Knowledge Translation and Transfer Community of Practice is hosting three sessions this fall on topics related to knowledge mobilization and innovation.

On October 25, computer science professor Dan Gillis will lead a conversation about how hackathons have been successfully adapted to the teaching and learning environment, providing new possibilities for instructors and students. This session will explore how hackathons can provide students with interdisciplinary and experiential learning opportunities, connect them with community expertise, and foster the development of transferrable skills. We will also discuss how hackathons and design thinking can be used as an effective tool for knowledge mobilization.

This event is free and open to anyone.

Refreshments and snacks will be available – please register if you’re planning on coming.
