Join us for this full-day event dedicated to reflecting upon our teaching and learning practices through workshops, presentations, facilitated discussions and demonstrations of class activities. This year's theme, "Challenging Our Assumptions: Towards More Inclusive Ways of Teaching and Learning," invites you to consider how we, as educators, practitioners and scholars, need to challenge our assumptions—about our students, classrooms, disciplines, creative practices, institutional policies and ourselves.

This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its ninth year. The show presents original work that explores the role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour.
Student Wellness Centre teams up with the Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers to support recent OCADU graduates with a focus on managing workplace stress, interpersonal professionalism, and employment distress. This is an ongoing series of monthly workshops as a part of the OCADU Commitment to ease the transition from campus culture to the workplace. SWC Facilitators will share coping strategies, scalable goals, and strengths-based language to help each participant tap into their inner boss.
