Theme: Leadership in Education

This year’s CNIE-RCIÉ conference encourages us to consider and think critically about the rapid changes taking place both in face-to-face and online classrooms. The availability of technology has exploded, and our current understanding of how learning best takes place suggests that we need to create environments that are learner-centered, active and participatory. How can we create these environments in our classrooms? What works well? And, in an era with significant fiscal challenges, how can we succeed long-term? We will explore these questions and facilitate discussion.

Conference streams:

1. Educational Technology: Possible areas include classroom design innovations, engagement technology, audio/visual tools, software, and new educational technology initiatives.

2. Teaching and Learning: Application of pedagogies in online, blended, or hybrid courses.

3. Innovations in Education: Disciplinary application of old practices in non-traditional ways.

4. Research: Research studies and theoretical explorations of educational technology pedagogy and practices.
