Updates from this up-coming conference.

2018 BC Digital Learning Symposium
On behalf of all the symposium organizers welcome to the 2018 Digital Learning Symposium – Frontiers of InnovationCurriculum Change in Online Learning Environments.
This email is to all delegates, presenters, and sponsors registered. Please read through to the end for important information including:

New sessions added some moved or changed

Please check your schedule if you have created one already, also consider building one if you have not.  Note the following new additions:

Session Curation

Session descriptions include a link to an online Google document to enable delegates to ask presenters questions in advance, and after, the presentation.  Please consider before, during, and after the event to:

  • Add questions for presenters in advance so they can address them in the session;
  • During the session, take notes, provide impressions and add your voice;
  • After the session, check out the curated notes and add to the conversation.

The key point here is: what is it that you want to learn about, to make a note of, and to remember for your own practice? The Google documents will be stored on a Google Site that will live beyond the symposium, the site we are using and will be shared openly with those attending and those that could not.


We have negotiated a parking rate of $10 for overnight and $5 rate for daily parking at the Westin Wall Centre Vancouver Airport Hotel. If you are staying at the hotel under the conference guest room block please provide your license number to the front desk.
