“Lunchable Learning” is a weekly web radio show live-streamed Mondays at noon on ds106 Radio. We have 10 shows planned from October 4 to December 6, 2021. The goal of “Lunchable Learning” is to provide post-secondary educators with professional learning in a new and fun format that explores and models digital literacy and a curious, experimental mindset. The radio show will aim to:
- Raise awareness of current hot topics in B.C. post-secondary education
- Feature guest interviews with individuals from the post-secondary sector
- Highlight tools and tips for teaching and group facilitation
- Encourage experiments with teaching and learning strategies through challenge activities
- Provide resources on show topics for listeners to read and explore further
