The Centre for Innovation and Excellence in Learning will be hosting the fourth annual Vancouver Island University Teaching and Learning Conference on May 10-12, 2017 at the Nanaimo Campus.
Wednesday, May 10 is our pre-conference (with online keynote and online sessions) and takes place virtually (all online from wherever your computer, headset and speakers are located). No cost is required for VIU or non-VIU registrants, but we do require you to register as we'll need to send you links to the virtual conference room and instructions for connecting.
Thursday, May 11 and Friday, May 12 are core conference days held at Nanaimo campus with a keynote opening both days along with workshops and teaching slams. Cost is $30 per day for non-VIU registrants. Free for VIU campus community members.
Registration via this website is required for both VIU and non-VIU registrants for all days - so we can manage attendance numbers. More information on choosing your sessions (keynotes, workshops and teaching slams) will come via an email (e.g., around end of March when program is complete).
This year's conference theme is: Celebrating Impactful Assessment
Assessment is more—much more—than evaluation. It’s the starting point for learning. It’s the means by which we generate feedback necessary for growth and progress. It’s how we get students to take stock of their assets, so they can assume greater responsibility for their own journey.
Assessment is, fundamentally, the process that promotes learning for all of us, students and teachers alike. Join us for three days of engagement, in which we consider the concept of assessment in all of its manifestations: not just assessment OF learning, but also FOR learning and AS learning.
