Here’s some text you can copy and paste to explain the Festival of Learning.

The Festival of Learning is a unique, four-day celebration of learning and teaching in higher education in British Columbia to be held June 6 – 9, 2016 at the Delta Hotel & Conference Centre in Burnaby, B.C.

Key provincial teaching and learning support groups are working together for the first time to bring this rich and diverse professional learning opportunity to all our colleagues in higher education. The Festival of Learning will bring together a number of established groups and well-attended annual provincial events under one banner including:

Faculty, instructors, professors, educational developers, instructional designers, educational technologists, librarians, leaders, and all who work in support of higher ed teaching and learning in BC  will find a variety of opportunities to learn, laugh, create and collaborate with colleagues from across B.C. and beyond.

This event will combine features of traditional conferences (e.g., workshops and sessions) with more adventurous formats like intensives, institutes, studios, cafes, showcases, slams and maker fairs.

The Festival schedule will also include whole-day or multiple-day workshops focussed on specific topics (e.g., Leadership, Course Redesign, Open Pedagogy, Liberating Structures), as well as a variety of social events and spaces for groups to network.

Participants can join for one, two, three or all four days and be able to create a custom schedule of integrated learning experiences. BCcampus is supporting the development of this event, along with many volunteers across the province to make this a memorable time for all.
