The Northern Lights – Reflections on Teaching Conference is a two-day virtual conference that brings together college faculty and staff across northern Ontario to discuss, reflect, collaborate, partner, and innovate their teaching and learning practices. Your experiences working in northern, rural, and remote communities with a diversity of students and cultures is what makes post-secondary education in northern Ontario so valuable.
We hope that by inviting you to reflect, collaborate, and innovate, we will all benefit from the rich experiences of fellow educators and students. Our goal is that you will leave this conference inspired to engage in reflective practice, form collaborations with northern colleagues, and think about ways to innovate and challenge your own teaching and learning practices. By thinking critically and discussing ideas, successes, challenges, and opportunities with others, we will all benefit from personal and professional growth, which will greatly benefit the students we support.
