Gateways in Higher Education: Cultures, Transitions and Transformations

Halifax, Nova Scotia

June 21, 2017 – June 24, 2017

In the realms of the theory and practice of technology, pedagogy, and assessment, it seems as though higher education is continually at the gateway, a liminal space, where possibility and advancement is available. What is the role of the post-secondary institutions, classrooms, teachers in supporting the students in their quest for higher learning? Understanding where we have come from and where we are now is key to understanding where we are going, and how we can develop and change over the next century to meet the needs of our changing student demographics.

We invite conference participants to engage in questions such as these, and considerations of our collective contributions to social, political, economic and human wellbeing in the unique context of Halifax—a place that combines real and metaphorical gateways with a 200-year history of providing opportunities for higher education.
