This engaging event for post-secondary educators, administrators, learners and interested community members is being hosted collaboratively by Saskatchewan Polytechnic, the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan.

The 2020 theme of inclusion will be focused on research, technology and pedagogy. The purpose of this conference is to both inform attendees and support paradigm shifts within post-secondary education.

Call for presentations

A call for presentation proposals is open now to all academics, scholars, students and community members in one of the following four pathways: 

  1. Identifying the doors – Recognizing the barriers (e.g.: non-traditional learners, language barriers, technology gaps, intersecting diversities)
  2. Handing over the keys - Decolonization (e.g.: learner driven institutional priorities, calls to action, success of Indigenous students, International education)
  3. Unlocking the doors - Inclusive education and accessibility (e.g.: student and learning supports, open pedagogy, peer mentoring)
  4. Every door is the right door – Meeting learners where they are (e.g.: co-creating syllabi, curriculum, student choice in assessment)

Proposals are due January 31, 2020 using Google Forms. The inter-institutional advisory committee will review and send invitations to accepted presenters by February 28, 2020.
