Digital Learning Showcase


What will your SFU teaching and learning environment look like in 2024 and beyond?


Digital learning technology has disrupted traditional education practices for over two decades—but the events of the past few years have accelerated the pace of change exponentially. 

The Centre for Educational Excellence invites you to share how technology has changed your understanding of teaching and learning in online, blended or face-to-face courses. 

Join your colleagues to explore what has and what has not been working and what risks might be worth taking a chance on as we move forward into a new era of higher education. 

What to expect 

Three to four presentations with similar themes will be organized into panels. Each participant will give a 10-minute presentation.

Following each group of 10-minute presentations, there will be a 15-minute, moderated discussion with the presenters.

Typically offered in March.
