Technology and Education Seminar and Showcase (TESS)

eCampusOntario’s annual TESS conference celebrates and advances community and collaboration across the postsecondary sector. Colleagues from around the province and beyond reconnect at the The Toronto Reference Library on November 5 - 6 at Ontario’s favourite technology and education conference. Since 2015, the flagship event has allowed participants to enjoy a shared experience with professionals passionate about creating vibrant learning experiences that empower learners to achieve their goals.
 

Conference Theme: Transforming Together

This year we are seeking in-person presentations on how we can support learners with digital-first options on their chosen journey to success. Presenters will explore how technology can open new doors to the knowledge and skills learners need to achieve the future they imagine.
 

Conference Tracks:

Partnerships and Collaboration

How can collaboration support pedagogical innovation? Whether between postsecondary institutions or with industry, partnerships can be the kernel of important new ideas with amplified sector impact.


DX Leaders

How have digital transformation (DX) leaders been inspiring institutional and sector-wide change? DX Leaders effect cultural shifts at institutions to make digital-first education a reality for the needs of future learners. 

 

Future Focus

How can new technologies inspire changes to teaching and learning that through knowledge sharing and collaboration could have a systemic impact on the experience and accessibility of higher education?

 

New Visions for Digital Learning

How can new ways of learning advance postsecondary education? This track explores how different visons for education, such as Indigenous ways of knowing, experiential learning and holistic education, can influence and enrich digital-first learning.
