At the Festival of Learning 2018 (#FoL18) in the Pinnacle Hotel Vancouver Harbourfront, May 28 – 30, 2018, we’ll be honouring teaching and learning in higher education across the province. Our keynote speakers will share their experience with post-secondary education, with discussion on how we can address some of the challenges through collaboration and communication.
