- Learn how educational technology is making difference in the lives of refugees
- Build skills through workshops and other presentations on topics such as Open Educational Resources (OERs), Universal Design for Learning, e-learning and distance education, emerging technologies, and other areas of interest.
- Engage with speakers and other participants in our all-live conference (no recordings of presentations during the conference)
- Engage with other participants through social activities (yes—they can happen in a virtual conference) like speed networking and birds-of-a-feather sessions
- Hear the latest research in teaching and learning, and educational technology from leading researchers across Canada.
- Learn about innovative projects from open, digital, and distance learning groups and faculty development groups in higher education, schools, and workplaces through cases study sessions.
