This event is an exciting opportunity to explore, discuss and learn new teaching ideas and best practices from our VIU colleagues and others from across B.C. and Canada.  We are pleased to announce this year's conference theme: Celebrating Impactful AssessmentAssessment 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.The conference will feature keynotes, concurrent workshops, and an exciting set of “teaching slams”, all focused on sharing different approaches to teaching and learning with a focus on the theme of "Celebrating Impactful Assessment". We have the great pleasure of welcoming Dr. Kimberly Tanner, tenured Professor of Biology at San Francisco State University, to keynote the opening and closing sessions of the conference. The call for proposals will be opening soon. Come to learn new ideas for your classroom and take the opportunity to share your own best practices!  We look forward to seeing you at VIU’s Teaching and Learning Conference.See the Teaching and Learning Conference Website for more information.true
