People crave personal and meaningful interaction in their learning and their lives. The importance of connection has especially been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the move to remote teaching and learning. In this year’s program, we will explore how we can create and enable meaningful connections for engaged learning.

Join us for 25 sessions that include keynotes, plenaries and concurrent presentations, discussions, panels and interactive workshops.
