TESS 2021 Online
November 15-16 & 18-19, 2021
online + free
"eCampusOntario’s annual TESS (Technology and Education Seminar and Showcase) conference celebrates and advances community and collaboration across the post-secondary sector. This year TESS will be held online, throughout the week providing flexible half day sessions on November 15-16 and 18-19.
Last year’s TESS theme of Humanizing Learning reflected our early experience of the pandemic’s impact on teaching and learning. We now emerge into a “new normal”, shifting from emergency remote education to a pedagogy that is digital by design – delivering high-quality online and hybrid programming at scale.
We have learned that we have the ability not only to survive but thrive together in the future.
TESS 2021 is focused on how we co-create that future.
Conversations will highlight learning from the pandemic – and the actions we can take, individually and collectively, to crystallize that learning."
