In this exciting time of change, education is transforming.
There are new tools to help us teach and creative ways to
help our students learn — and they continue to change at a
rapid pace. Today’s students have new expectations of their
learning experience and the resulting impact it will have
on their careers, their future — and their lives. In order
to fully realize the potential of this transformation, we
must place students at the centre. A learner-centred focus
sets clear goals, identifies outcomes and accomplishments,
and prepares our students for tomorrow’s world — today.
You’re invited to join us Nov 16–18, 2007 to explore this
exciting concept and discover how we can work together with
our students to transform education — and lives.
Presenters are encouraged to submit presentations that
demonstrate how lives have been transformed through:
• Unique ways of enhancing the teaching and learning
• Innovative ways of evaluating student learning
• Institutional practices that support innovative teaching
and learning practices
• Creative strategies that engage students and community
partners in learning opportunities
• Teaching practices that focus on the whole person —
mind, body, and spirit
• Inclusive teaching and learning strategies enabling all
students to fully participate
• Expanding learning spaces in creative ways
Submissions are encouraged from all participants in the
higher educational process — faculty, students in
partnerships with others, staff, students services,
administrators, and the community.
