The end of term iTea is coming up on Thursday, December 6th from 4-6pm in the Inforum. This year, the theme is Community Connections and they would like to showcase projects and work-related experiences within the iSchool, the University, and the community at large.
Some great examples of these that we have already seen this fall are:
- The September iTea, ‘Five Ways to Well-being’ iTea, hosted by the Faculty of Information iStudents for mental Health and the School of Graduate Studies student outreach ambassadors.
- PhD student Sharly Chan working with Waterfront Toronto and Sidewalk Labs on the ‘smart city’ project
- The Faculty of Information’s Research Funding Coordinator, Stephanie Fisher, speaking at a Jackman Humanities Institute lightning lunch on the topic of conducting participatory action research as a way to build strong, mutually-beneficial relationships between digital games researchers, communities and industries.
- Museum Studies Assistant Professor Irina D. Mihalache speaking as a recent guest about the intersection of food, culture and feminism in the kitchen, on the ‘Meant to be eaten podcast’.
These are just a few of the many, many wonderful activities and projects our staff, faculty and students have been busy working on this fall, but we’d like to hear more! Share exciting projects you’ve been working on within the iSchool, the University and out in the community. And if you have photographs, even better!
Please send your stories and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, December 3rd to include in the iTea presentation on December 6th.
