We are pleased to announce that registration is open for our 12th annual University of Waterloo Teaching and Learning Conference taking place on April 28 & April 29, 2021. Because the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of our 2020 conference, we will be proceeding with the theme of “Learning Through Assessment” that we had planned for that year. This year’s conference will be held entirely online.
We are excited to welcome Dr. Kay Sambell, Independent Consultant and Visiting Professor of Assessment for Learning at the University of Sunderland, and Dr. Sally Brown, Independent Consultant in Learning, Teaching and Assessment and Emerita Professor at Leeds Beckett University, as our returning keynote speakers. Additionally, we are thrilled to announce that Dr. Norm Vaughan, Professor in the Department of Education at Mount Royal University, will be joining us this year as our third keynote speaker. Finally, the Igniting Our Practice plenary session will feature three inspirational University of Waterloo professors – Dr. Robert Hill and Dr. Brenda Lee (Physics), and Dr. Veronica Austen (English) – demonstrating a successful instructional approach to showcase some of the excellent remote teaching happening on our campus.
The registration deadline is Sunday, April 26, 2020.
