EDC_2016EDC 2016 Annual Conference – Call for proposals
This year’s EDC Conference, “Educational Developers Without Borders”, is hosted by University of Windsor and St. Clair College.

This conference will explore the borders that shape our options and the factors that inform our decisions at these borders, offering new insights about how we get to “there” – however we envision that goal – from “here.” Submission deadline for proposals is October 16, 2015.

  • MAGNA Online Seminars: Various topics and dates from August through until October. Use links on the STLHE website for special discounted prices for STLHE members.
