On January 17th, eCampusOntario held the eLearning Seminar + Showcase at the Toronto Reference Library - the event was a tremendous success. With this year’s event now complete, we would like to thank the many students and faculty who attended – we appreciated your ideas and innovations.
We would also like to thank those who stopped by the ‘What’s Next Booth’ to offer suggestions on how to make future elearning events even more successful.
Creating new possibilities for better education
The eLearning Seminar + Showcase forum provided attendees with a unique opportunity to showcase their latest achievements - and learn what peers are doing to leverage the power of technology-enabled learning.
The event featured an informal venue called The Unconference, where elearning professionals created their own breakout groups to discuss topical issues and explore new ideas. The response was exceptional, and we look forward to more Unconference events in the future.
Event participants were also able to engage with students through the Student Experience Design (SXD) Studio presentations. These presentations featured the outcomes of a previous full-day session on January 16th at the same location, where students gathered to visualize the future of online learning.
Special presentations by our guest speakers
We would also like to thank our distinguished speakers and presenters, including eCampusOntario Co-Chair Judith Morris, President & CEO of Lambton College; Don Presant, President of Learning Agents and an award-winning learning innovator; Richard Tuck, CEO of Riipen, and Jake Hirsch-Allen, Lynda.com Lead for Higher Education at LinkedIn Canada.
