Building Multimodal, Nonlinear, and Interactive Learning Experiences: A Deep Dive into the Tapestry Tool

April 27, 2020 | 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. | Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Chilcotin Room (256)

The Tapestry Tool is a newly-developed learning tool created by University of British Columbia students, faculty, and staff. It allows for non-linear, dynamic, easily updatable, and student-centered content. The Tapestry Tool is being designed to allow for student/faculty co-creation of knowledge, to engage students with their learning community, and to enhance learning experiences across disciplines. This workshop begins with the theoretical underpinnings for the Tool, and several use cases for the Tapestry Tool. You will then get a chance to discuss other possible use cases in small groups. Following that, you will create your own “Tapestry”, either individually or in a small group. You’ll see non-linear and interactive learning design in action and walk out with new perspectives on online teaching and learning.

Speakers: Steven J. Barnes, Melanie Butt, Aidin Niavarani
