On October 15, Interuniversity Conference on Education (ICE) 2011 will be happening simultaneously at McGill, McMaster, Quest, UBC, and Waterloo. During this event, a speaker from each university will be shown at all other host universities over a live internet video stream, showcasing a talk on the topic of innovating education. An interactive discussion across all universities will be facilitated throughout the event over Twitter. Following these talks, UBC’s ICE will engage its delegates in a series of talks, panels, and workshops on topics spanning from the knowledge versus skills debate, the future of evaluations and grading, and the use of problem-based learning in the classroom. These diverse topics will aim to engage not only post-secondary students and professors, but also both high school students and teachers, as well as the general public interested in innovating education.
