The Hybrid Experience:
Designing the Future of Learning
The Technology and Education Seminar and Showcase (TESS) Conference has been eCampusOntario’s annual flagship event since 2015. TESS is based on two core principles – the importance of collaboration and honouring our shared successes. The conference brings together the community to share, learn and celebrate as we shape the future of learning together.
We are thrilled to announce that this TESS will be held in person in Toronto this October (date TBA). This year’s theme – The Hybrid Experience: Designing the Future of Learning – explores the evolution of an integrated digital and in-person education environment, what it means for the future of delivering vibrant learning experiences, and the steps we take today for a more effective and sustainable tomorrow.
Sessions will focus on three areas that are vital to defining a hybrid future:
Imagining Digital Futures
Creating space for conceptualizing what’s possible. Our digital futures are as open as our imaginations and speakers are invited to explore the next realm of virtual and hybrid learning.
Investigating whether hybrid learning systems can deliver on their promise of digital inclusion, supporting learners with flexibility, technology and accessibility wherever they are, whatever their situation.
Practices and Pedagogies
Exploring the theories of hybrid pedagogies and how they translate into on-the-ground blended learning methods for delivering immersive experiences for all learners.
You can choose to participate in TESS 2022 in either of the following formats:
- In-person Presentation (30-minute presentation, 10-minute Q&A)
