The 2017 Vancouver Island University Teaching and Learning Conference will be held May 10-12, 2017.

Our pre-conference virtual sessions take place on May 10th with an online keynote speaker. These will be synchronous online sessions which you may attend from your office or home. Details on connecting to the online session will be sent to registrants. 

The face-to-face conference will be May 11-12, 2017 on the Nanaimo campus with two keynote talks (one each morning) and lots of sessions throughout the day. Attendance at sessions will be based on 'first-come, first-seats' sort of basis rather than selecting your sessions ahead of time.

Registration is now open until May 3, 2017. Please note that 'choosing your sessions' in the Schedule DOES NOT mean you are registered to attend. The Scheduling tool (coloured online program powered by Sched.org) that lets you create an account and choose your sessions is merely a social media platform to make your own customized schedule - it is not related to registration or saving your spot in a workshop. BUT it is helpful for you to make your schedule so we can see who might be interested in each session.
