Idea Lab

The Idea Lab supports your teaching with in-class digital fluency sessions customized to suit your course and your students’ needs.  We teach sessions focusing on the creation of digital media for alternative, authentic assignments that differ from traditional essays or research papers. 

In addition to these in-class workshops, the Idea Lab offers studio spaces at North and Lakeshore campuses that are available to all Guelph-Humber students (regardless of their program), online tutorials and resources, as well as support via email and online appointments
If you are interested in having someone from the Idea Lab provide an in-class workshop, it is best to book these sessions in advance, especially at the busiest times of the semester.  We find that Idea Lab sessions work best 2-3 weeks before an assignment is due, but after the students have been introduced to the assignment requirements and begun their research.  

Sessions last approximately 90 minutes and teach digital fluency skills, such as: 

  • Creating Infographics 

  • Creating Simple Websites 

  • Recording and Editing Podcasts 

  • Creating and Delivering Presentations 

  • Creating Digital Posters 

  • Creating Live Action Videos 

  • Creating Animated Videos 

  • 3D Printing
