WINTER TERM ONLY – Hybrid **NEW Format**

Participants select a presentation topic from a curated list of articles under Workshop Materials below. The articles typically have appeared in well-known Canadian and US monthly journals or the Opinion/Editorial pages (Globe & Mail, New York Times, Washington Post, Guardian, etc) covering a wide range of current interests- from abortion rights to xenophobia in society. Anything is fair game except “no Trump”. There is “tech”, pop culture, arts, business, politics, international affairs, health & religion. You may also propose an article not on the list to the Facilitators. There will be two 25-minute presentations / workshop session.

This workshop will have a new delivery format, called “Hybrid mode” where some participants can be remote on Zoom, while others are simultaneously in-person in the classroom. Total attendance is limited to 25 participants with any combination of remote and up to 12 in-class. NOTE: Please indicate your preference when registering, however you are free to decide the day before each workshop by notifying a facilitator.
