DemoFest 2016

DemoFest is a great opportunity for faculty and staff to showcase their work, gain recognition, and get feedback from fellow faculty and staff. Examples include courses, activities or tech tools. You might even win a JIBC DemoFest Award, based on the voting of your colleagues at the event.

Here’s what you need to know:

When: Thursday December 1, 2016 , 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Where:  JIBC New Westminster Campus, Main Floor Atrium

Event Kick-off will take place at 11:30am in the Theatre – come to collect your DemoFest Guide and see highlights of each project.

How it works:

    • Simulations
    • Mobile Learning
    • Open courses/materials
    • Emerging technologies
    • Blended learning
    • Video conferencing
    • Evaluation practices
    • Students Share:  a new category where students demo something they think our programs should know about OR a student created innovation.
    • Innovative Activities:  showcase an innovative or experiential activity that your program or you (instructors) do in your courses with students
  • Demonstrators will sit at breakout tables located throughout the atrium with their laptop or other device to display their work.
  • Attendees will have a map showing them where projects are located.
  • Attendees wander from table-to-table and room-to-room to see and discuss projects they are interested in.
