OISE professor Kang Lee has been awarded a 2014 Ig Nobel Prize for his study on the phenomenon of "face pareidolia" - where onlookers report seeing images of Jesus, Virgin Mary, or Elvis in objects such as toast, shrouds and clouds...
This workshop focuses on the development and maintenance of student-based film opportunities, both as a part of English and Arts curricula (specifically, for Media Studies and Media Arts courses) and co-curricular activity (such as a student film club). Topics to be addressed include the use of film as text in the classroom, the development of storyboarding skills, and the translation of pre- production plans into post-production success. Throughout the workshop, the presenter will screen a number of student film projects that he has helped facilitate and offer his insights on factors contributing to the relative success of each.
A CCR notation will be awarded under Teacher Professional Development if 3 workshops are completed.

"Re" establishing teacher education at the Somali National University: Challenges and opportunities
Fouzia Warsame, PhD Candidate, SJE/OISE, Dean, Faculty of Education and Social Science, Somali National University
After more than two decades, the Somali National University has been reinstated along with several faculties and programs. Among these is the Faculty of Education with the goal to re-establish a national teacher training program. Re-establishing the teacher education program presents many challenges but also many opportunities for creating a relevant and responsive program.
