Master of Digital Media faculty member Patrick Pennefather is running "Disrupting the 'Classroom': Re-Engaging Learners" at SXSWedu this year. From the workshop's description:

Tired of your same old? Want to 'fix' the 'broken?' Disrupting the Classroom is the art of re-engaging distracted, potentially uninspired learners. Teachers, designers, administrators and learners will walk away with new tools and inspired approaches to teaching from one of the most innovative new schools in Canada dedicated to nurturing collaborative and adaptive intelligence in a digital world. Join Patrick and his award-winning antics for a second year. Come prototype the next disruption. 

Here at the Centre for Digital Media, Patrick teaches collaborative, creative and adaptive intelligence in his Interdisciplinary Improvisation course. His teachings are built upon his experiences as both a designer and comedic performer. Pennefather is an award-winning composer, having designed sound on a staggering 500 live and multi-media productions over the past 30 years.
