Status: open

On behalf of BCcampus, the Digital Learning Strategy Forum Program Committee invites you to submit a presentation proposal for the Digital Learning Strategy Forum on November 13-14, 2024, at Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre in Vancouver, B.C.

The Forum provides an opportunity to connect with colleagues from across B.C. and discuss key topics related to digital learning. Your participation will help support the development of related provincial initiatives.  

We invite session proposals focusing on key topics related to the B.C. Post-Secondary Digital Learning Strategy. Special consideration will be given to proposals addressing the following topics. Please select the one best aligned with your session.


  • Inclusive and Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  • Creating meaningful reconciliation through technology-enhanced teaching and learning
  • Sustainability of digital education: Innovations in making digital post-secondary education accessible, affordable, and sustainable
  • Human-centred design in digital learning environments
  • Collaboration across the system
  • Safety in digital spaces
  • Pedagogical strategies for technology-enhanced learning
  • Supporting digital literacy

See the Guidelines for Technology-Enhanced Learning for descriptions on each topic.

Session Types:

  • Lightning Talk: Lightning talks are short 10-minute presentations offering a quick take on a story, case study, idea, or technique.
  • Presentations: Presentations are 25-minute sessions designed to provide in-depth insight into the topic. Presenters are encouraged to use engaging formats such as slides, videos, or demonstrations. At least five minutes should be reserved for questions.
  • Interactive Session: Interactive sessions are 55-minute dynamic and participatory experiences where attendees actively engage with the content and each other. These sessions should involve exercises designed to encourage collaboration and exploration. Examples include discussions, seminars, panels, or workshops. Proposals should address the planned interactive tools or techniques.

Proposal Submission:

Proposals are enthusiastically welcomed from anyone interested in sharing topics related to the B.C. Post-Secondary Digital Learning Strategy, including all educational contexts and professional roles. Students are especially encouraged to submit proposals.
