Upcoming Teaching & Learning events

This page will continue to evolve over the next few weeks as many conferences adapt to the current climate by switching to virtual and free options.

Learning Connections Conference: Think Global, Act Local

May 31 to June 4

"The 2021 LCC Theme aims to explore these two diverse challenges, build our global perspective (Think Global), and engage our local partners and industry (Act Local). It will also challenge us to think more broadly about sustainability by exploring "social sustainability" by elevating the role belonging, equity, diversity, and inclusion play in our everday lives."

REMINDER: This is the St. Lawrence College "all-employee" annual conference.

STLHE Unconference

June 7 to 11, 2021

"As it is still not possible to have an in-person conference this year, STLHE invites the community to join them in celebrating the 40th anniversary of the establishment of STLHE, decades of incredible volunteers and members, and a multitude of other note-worthy highlights at this year’s Unconference.

The Unconference will foster an unconventional schedule of synchronous and asynchronous posters, presentations, keynotes, and discussions as we come together as a community while staying apart.

More information to come."

Advancing Learning: Dare to be Curious

June 8 to 10, 2021

"Advancing Learning has been the province's leading educational technology conference since the 1990s. We are proud of fostering an environment where educators (faculty, instructional designers, multimedia and graphic specialists) share their experiences with their colleagues.

Our goal is to advance education in Ontario by learning from practicing educators about topics related to innovative educational technology and its use in higher education."

International Teaching Online Symposium

June 17 to 18, 2021

"We seek to develop a thorough understanding of the needs of international students in the online or open educational environment and to explore the broader topic of the promising practices for teaching linguistically and culturally diverse international students. Our two-day virtual Research Symposium will include opportunities for research sharing, professional development, and research collaboration by focusing on the needs of graduate students, faculty teaching international students, and those with an interest in the mainstreaming of online or open education.

The first day will include scholarship sharing, two-panel discussions (faculty and emerging scholars, and international students), a synthesis/debriefing session, and two keynote speakers on this emerging topic. The second day will provide an opportunity for researchers to engage in networking discussions."
