Guerrilla Education! A Very Hands-On Open Education Week Event


OCAD U has an opportunity to do things differently. We can be a leader in pushing boundaries.

While we do have “traditional” teaching and learning spaces, moments, and pathways; as an art and design university we also have a fundamental interest in disruption, innovation, and an opening up of Education for everyone.

Bring your challenges, ideas, and experience for a day of unconference breakout sessions and an Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. Lunch and refreshments provided by Karines.
