Every year, eCampusOntario hosts the Technology and Education Seminar and Showcase (TESS), an event for Ontario’s public colleges and universities to discuss, celebrate, and advance technological innovation, community, and collaboration. This year’s TESS is expected to be held on October 19 – 21 at the Globe and Mail Centre in Toronto.

The theme for this year will be: Humanizing Learning: Inspired Action and Impact. Nothing is more important than human connection. As technology continues to advance education, deepening human interactions in online learning environments is critical for success in higher education. Presenters and attendees will examine the conference theme from the student perspective and take into account opportunities to create a more connected learning experience for both synchronous and asynchronous environments.

TESS 2020 is applying a holistic 360-degree perspective to set the stage for inspired action, based on the following tracks:

  • Emerging technologies;
  • Inspiring & improving inclusion, diversity, equity & access in education (IDEA);
  • Learned leadership;
  • Empathy & engagement; and
  • Research & data-driven decision making.

These tracks will enable attendees to consider the education experience and to take inspired action for improved approaches to learning.
