KPU FoH is pleased to invite you to present at a day of workshops to share eLearning strategies for the classroom and online. This is a practical hands on opportunity to discuss e-learning tools with others and to build a community of practice. We are interested in accessible, easy to use, low-cost/free technologies that can be used in any classroom or clinical setting.

As we are all aware, learning technology has reshaped how we engage students in teaching, learning and creativity. Various apps, social media and new technologies continue to transform how we share, communicate, network, collaborate, create and disseminate seamlessly online and in the classroom. This conference will focus on the practical application of these types of technologies in relation to teaching and learning.

KPU Faculty of Health invites you to come and share e-learning tools that you have found particularly useful within your own teaching practice. We welcome examples from the classroom and online teaching of theory, lab and clinical experiences.
