TESS 2023: Supporting the Digitally Empowered Learner

November 1 – 2, 2023
Globe and Mail Centre, Toronto

Every year, eCampusOntario brings together professionals from Ontario’s publicly-assisted colleges, universities, and Indigenous Institutes to discuss, celebrate, and advance technological innovation, community, and collaboration.

The theme of TESS 2023 is Supporting the Digitally Empowered Learner. How can we support learners with digital first options on their chosen journey to success? The Technology and Education Seminar and Showcase (TESS) Conference has been eCampusOntario’s annual flagship event since 2015. This year we’ll explore how technology can open new doors to the knowledge and skills learners need to achieve the future they imagine. Reconnect with your colleagues on November 1 and 2, 2023 at Ontario’s favourite technology and education conference at the Globe and Mail Centre in Toronto. Participate in a shared experience with professionals passionate about creating vibrant learning experiences that empower learners to achieve their goals.

Experiential Learning

What unique opportunities can emerging technologies and learning practices provide for experiential and work-integrated learning that more effectively empower learners to achieve their goals faster?

Transformative Technology

With the continual emergence of transformative technologies (ChatGPT, Web 3.0), how can learner-centered pedagogies help turn disruption into learner advantage?

The Lifelong Learner

How can technology-enabled learning provide lifelong learners and newcomers with better access to reskilling and upskilling opportunities?

The Digital Balance

Recent experience has provided educators with a better understanding of the challenges learners face with virtual learning. How can these lessons help us understand the ways teachers and technology can better support human-centered learning to enable learner success?

We look forward to collaborating with you to co-create a holistic education for learners to thrive in evolving social and work environments and empower them to shape a better future.
