Information Workshop I

INF1005H

Experiential, participatory workshop to integrate the skills, perspectives, and knowledge introduced in the other core courses. The intention of the workshops is to broaden your exposure to other areas; we encourage students to go outside of their comfort zone. Students will be working in groups.

Students must complete two (2) workshops (INF1005H and INF1006H), each worth 0.25 FCE to fulfill the core requirements for the Master of Information degree. The workshops must be taken with different instructors. Normally INF1005H and INF1006H are taken during the same term. INF1005H is offered the first 6 weeks of the Winter term and INF1006H starts right after.

All instructors will give their workshop twice in the session – once in the first 6 weeks (week of January 8, 2018 to week of February 12, 2018) in the winter 2018 term, and again in the last 6 weeks of the session (week of February 26, 2018 to week of April 2, 2018) in the same time slot.

Please note that students need to enroll in one section each of both INF1005H and INF1006H.
