ETUG Spring 2024 Workshop – Digital Literacy Today: Celebrating 30 Years of Educational Transformation

Learner preferences and characteristics in B.C. higher education have undergone significant changes in recent years. Notably, emerging trends include a greater expectation for varied learning modalities (online, hybrid, and in person), as well as a wider spectrum of digital literacy skills. At the same time, post-secondary institutions have had to adapt to various disruptive technological changes, while being resilient in the face of an uncertain educational landscape.

In this spring workshop, commemorating ETUG’s 30th anniversary, we will explore the interaction between our educational ecosystem and the various technologies driving change. The focus will be on practical issues, solutions, and real technology-related challenges facing post-secondary education. We will discuss topics such as the best practices for supporting digital literacy given the current state of technology, how institutions are considering the human behind the machine, and how colleges and universities are supporting a greater demand for online and hybrid options.

The event will be held May 9-10 in person at Simon Fraser University’s Harbour Centre in Vancouver, B.C., with a livestream option available. A mixer will be held on the evening of May 9 at the Butcher & Bullock.
