Some comments from past participants:

  • "The clear designation of time and space to write were the most important aspects. That, and the provided snacks/lunch!" (December 2016)
  • "The Intensive is exactly what I needed to do the work that I have needed to do. The Intensive provided the structure, environment and access to professionals who expertise in thesis/MRP writing. It was a catalyst in getting the writing well underway and have a plan to finish the project." (December 2016)
  • "The environment was conducive to getting the work done." (December 2016)

MAAD Faculty Dorie Millerson and Lynne Heller are presenting Research Wednesdays at the Learning Zone.
What does “handmade” mean in the digital age? OCAD U faculty Lynne Heller and Dorie Millerson (MAAD chair) will consider the place of digital craft at OCAD University from the perspectives of faculty, staff and technicians. Developed organically out of the everyday experiences of practitioners at OCAD U in Material Art & Design (MAAD), a department rooted in craft processes and materiality, the presentation will question how digital craft methods are changing teaching and learning in the studio and speculate how to understand objects that are produced by digital tools instead of through embodied making methods.  
OCAD U sessional Sustainable Practices instructor Sayeh-Dastgheib-Beheshti will be leading a hands-on Native Plants seed treatment workshop, to get you ready for spring gardening.
OCAD U graduate alumni will share their thesis and MRP experiences, including useful strategies and worthwhile insights they’ve learned about the process.
Presented by PROUD at OCAD U
