About the Conference

Educators, researchers, and organizational stakeholders have actively collaborated to rapidly embrace the digital transformation of education due to the unexpected outbreak of the COVID-19.

As we enter a third year living with COVID-19, it is crucial to reflect the past transformation in delivering schooling to recognize the successful innovations driving solutions and change. We should also explore innovations that address ongoing and new challenges such as inequities in education, learning losses during the pandemic, and advances in the digital transformation and education systems.

At the 2022 Virtual Canadian Network for Innovation in Education Conference, we continue to explore both types of innovation: The innovation demanded immediately by the current phase of COVID-19 pandemic and the broader systemic changes arising from digital transformation.

We invite professionals supporting the educational missions of post-secondary organizations, K-12 systems, continuing education, professional development, and workplace training to share reports about both types of innovation: in the here-and-now and for the long-run, both of which are the essence of innovating every day.
