Gateways in Higher Education: Cultures, Transitions, Transformations.

Join us to celebrate, discover, and explore teaching and learning. Registration opens in February on the conference website.

Join us to celebrate, discover, and explore teaching and learning in the unique context of Halifax—a place that combines real and imagined gateways with a 200-year history of providing opportunities for higher education. Understanding where we’ve come from, and where we are now, is key to understanding where we’re going, and how we can develop and change over the next century to meet the needs of our changing student demographics.
