Description

Join us at the 2018 OCULL Professional Development Retreat, to explore the theme:

Opening the Doors to Education

Keynote speakers:

Thursday: Lena Patterson (Senior Director, Programs and Stakeholder Relations, eCampusOntario)
Friday: David Lepofsky (Volunteer Chair AODA Alliance at Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act Alliance)

Post-secondary institutions, in partnership with the Ministry, are placing more and more emphasis on attracting non-traditional students to enter PSE. Coupled with a growing demand among adult learners for credit and non-credit opportunities to acquire new skills and knowledge to adapt to workplace demands, progress in their career or change careers, continuing education, lifelong learning and online learning units at our institutions are increasingly being asked to create programming and services to help attract more students. By focusing on market demands and learner’s needs, applying the research on adult learning, and developing innovative ways to use technology and open resources, academics, practitioners, educational support professionals and administrators are opening the doors to education. We see this trend as an opportunity to highlight the expertise that exists within our units to be both responsive and empowering.
