Virtual Event: EduTech Canada

Tapping into the power of technology to transform learning

Tuesday, June 8, 2021
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

It would be an understatement for those in education to say that COVID-19 has been a significant catalyst for change. Since millions of students at all levels across the country made an unexpected transition to online learning, there has been no shortage of opportunities and challenges identified to help shape the path ahead. Looking ahead, collaboration will be instrumental in ensuring that these learnings are captured by educators so that we can build a sustainable future for leveraging learning technology in the most effective way possible.

Our EduTech Virtual Summit brings together leaders from academic institutions and government officials from across Canada to showcase how they have implemented technology to enhance the learning experience, share what has worked well and where there is room for improvement and forge a path ahead. Join us for a discussion on how to harness the power of technology to enhance learning experiences.
