This year, let’s focus on the creative art of teaching at the first bilingual Advancing Learning Conference.

Creativity involves taking risks; it is essential that academic leaders and faculty seize every opportunity to enhance the student learning experience, from adopting new technologies to experimenting with new learning methods.

Together, let’s reflect on how creativity can be a powerful tool to design and deliver learning experiences that motivate, engage, and evaluate learners. We will look at this from the point of view of the three main parties involved in the process: the learners, the teachers, and the designers.

Come and experience this unique learning event at Excentricité – La Cité’s new immersive technology and entrepreneurship building – to stimulate your creativity and inspire your future practices.
