ACE-WIL Town Hall: Let’s Connect

*Note: This session has passed. Please view the recordings and resources below.

Connect with your WIL colleagues from across the province in a town hall, with breakout rooms for networking along with updates from ACE-WIL and across B.C. It’s hard to believe it’s been a full year since our first town hall in March 2020. We were all scrambling as we found ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic. None of us could have anticipated how much our world would be changed forever, but one constant has been our strong WIL community. We’ve been able to share our struggles and victories and count on one another for support along the way. Let’s take some time to reconnect and look ahead together during our next town hall, hosted once again by our friends at BCcampus.
