The past year has demonstrated the importance of strong partnerships and connections across disciplines. As colleagues across the teaching and learning community shifted to remote teaching, it became increasingly important to ensure scholarly pedagogical approaches were considered while reimagining courses with the support of educational technologies.
In the past, the MacPherson Institute has offered separate conferences to address topics related to educational technologies and scholarly research. In 2021, we have reimagined our approach to acknowledge and address the important partnership between these two disciplines through the pandemic and beyond.
Accompanying this pilot is a new conference title: Innovations in Education Conference. For the inaugural year, the conference theme is Partnership in Teaching and Learning. This conference provides an opportunity for an exploration of current issues and trends in teaching and learning partnerships through:
- Interdisciplinary Learning
- Active and Flexible Learning Spaces
- Learning Technologies
- Scholarly teaching
- Innovative, Holistic and Inclusive Teaching practices within and across different disciplinary contexts.
The conference is scheduled to take place virtually on Thursday, December 9 and Friday, December 10 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. each day. There is no cost for registering but capacity is limited so we encourage you to register early. We aim to make this conference an engaging and interactive experience and ask that registrants plan to attend the event live on both days to participate.
Registration is now sold out.
Thank you for your interest in attending the Innovations in Education Conference. We have reached capacity for this conference and look forward to seeing you next year.
