Learning Dispatch - October 24th, 2019 - Toronto Trip, Films to Watch, Reading


Why the dispatch? - I want to understand how I can make my learning more social. I love having interesting conversations with friends and colleagues about new things I learned. So these dispatches are part of an effort to get those conversations started. I am also very curious to know more about what you have been learning in return for sharing some of the learning highlights of my week/month/year.

Course Update - The B.Ed course has kept me busy. But it has been an interesting week for me personally. I have really enjoyed reading for the coursework this week and faculty lectures have kept me quite engaged. 

Reflection Notes from Trip to Toronto - I got to visit Toronto from 14th October to 18th October. I fell in love with the city and hope to visit it again soon. I also got to catch up with some old school friends. I visited the Royal Ontario Museum, Kensington Market, Queens Street, Ed Mirvish Theatre, CN Tower, Distillery District, Art Gallery of Ontario, Film Reference Library at TIFF Lightbox,  Union Station. I loved Toronto because it is such a great city to walk around. 

Film Recommendation - I saw some great films in the last two weeks. The list includes Ben is Back, Capernaum, The Incredible 25th Year of Mitsy Bearclaw, Salam. I highly recommend all four films and really enjoyed watching each one of them. 

What I'm currently reading - 'Coming Back to Me' by Marcus Trescothick and 'Being Adolescent' by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
