From September 23rd to 27th, edYOUcation will give students a broader look at the current state of McMaster’s experiential learning opportunities, open up dialogue on new forms of education and highlight the ways in which undergrads want to see their education evolve.

Putting students at the centre of their own education, edYOUcation will feature a variety of programming, including experiential education opportunities, hands-on application and problem based learning, as well as e-learning. EdYOUcation willencourage the sharing areas for improvement. As technology, pedagogy and the job market evolve, so too do the needs of students in the modern post-secondary education system.
