Please join our next Designers for Learning webinar on Tuesday, June 23rd at 6 p.m. (Eastern) where we will showcase the designs of the student volunteers involved in our recent service-learning cohort. The instructional design project was facilitated by members of the Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) and Designers for Learning, a nonprofit organization that coordinates volunteer service-learning opportunities for instructional design students who seek to gain experience creating instruction and other types of performance improvement solutions for nonprofits and other social enterprises.

The focus of this 100% virtual service-learning project was the instructional design of open educational resources to support the work of Grace Centers of Hope, a faith-based outreach to homeless and disadvantaged individuals and families. Clients in the Grace Centers of Hope recovery program who have not earned a high school diploma take in-house classes to prepare for the General Educational Development (GED) test. While the outcome of this project will support the mission of Grace Centers of Hope, our overriding plan is to build on the design students’ work to support those involved with adult basic education.

If time permits, we will also discuss preliminary plans for our fall project. Our live webinars are held using the online video platform Zoom (see connection at To help manage the conversation, the live meeting is capped to the first 25 attendees. However, the recording will be posted after the session where you will be able to add your comments.

See you Tuesday!

More on #ETADuation. It was a Jay Wilson fun-fest!

Spring Convocation, 2015

Dirk, Marguerite, and Rick were suitably goofy and resplendent in their academic regalia, but this day was all about Jay.  He was named the newest University of Saskatchewan Master Teacher. This is the highest honour one can achieve at the U of S–a rare and special honour.  It is offered only once at each convocation.  The Vice-Provost, Teaching and Learning, Patti McDougall gave a wonderful and warm tribute to Jay, and the auditorium burst into a standing ovation when he received his ring.  Of course, Jay owned the stage even though he wasn’t invited to give a speech.  He mugged for the jumbotron and managed to take a selfie of himself and the Vice-Provost.  It was, in a word, authentic Jay, and a chest thumping day for everyone.

Here are a few pix.

IMG_4829IMG_4777  IMG_4762 IMG_3041

Here’s the tribute that was included in the convocation book:

“Jay Ryan Wilson’s recognition as a University of Saskatchewan Master Teacher is the story of a “becoming”—an educator with impressive natural teaching talents who is leveraging them to turn himself into something even more. It isn’t a narrow skill set that makes Dr. Wilson a great teacher. What makes him truly exceptional is that he has the heart of a teacher. He could not behave any differently if he tried. His teaching, research, service, and personal identities intertwine into a Möbius strip, making him a singularly accomplished teacher and scholar.

Students jockey to get into his classes; the registration grapevine is alive every semester with students trying to figure out which sections marked TBA will eventually be taught by Dr. Wilson. We sometimes joke that many of our students have double majors—in English (or Science, or Social Studies, or Math) and in Wilson.

Dr. Wilson is a tireless leader on campus and off, and currently is the Head of Curriculum Studies, Chair of the Teaching, Learning, and Academic Resources Committee of Council, and a Teaching Fellow in the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness. Everything he touches is innovative because innovation is in his nature. He regularly invents fresh ways to do things. He is fearless in carrying them out, whether it means moving a class and a van-load of technology to the Kenderdine Campus on Emma Lake, or appearing in a tuxedo at the Neatby-Timlin Theatre for a public premiere of his students’ video projects.

Dr. Wilson is also a teacher-scholar. He has developed a nationally recognized program of research in “authentic learning.” His teaching and innovation were recognized at the U of S with the Provost’s Award for the Outstanding New Teacher in 2010, and nationally and internationally as an Apple Distinguished Educator in 2011, and the Desire 2 Learn Innovation Award from the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education in 2012—one of only five such awards given annually in Canada.

Dr. Wilson’s investment in his students and University sets a lofty standard we all hope to achieve but seldom do. Students describe him as inspiring and transformational—a teacher who will influence them for a lifetime. Colleagues describe him as a powerful leader and innovator—one who has already had a remarkable influence on teaching and learning, and promises to continue to burnish the reputation of teaching and learning on our campus.”

This was one of those magical convocations.  I’m a bit of a convocation geek anyway, and of the 60 or so I’ve attended over the years, this one stands out.

First on the happy agenda, congratulations to our newest M.Ed. alumni:

 Teresa Lalonde

Cara Hauber

Jeremy Lang

Brian Simmons

Aaron Biberdorf

Stephen Doubt

These are great folks, and as much as we hate to see them leave, we’re thrilled that they finished their programs. I know they must be busting with pride and relief.  Distance learning being what it is, only Teresa and Cara were on hand to walk across the stage, but they did a great job of representing the spring 2015 cohort, and it was great fun to share that special time with them.
