Have you been wondering how to make technology work for you and your students? Have you, on the other hand, wished you could vent your spleen at the technocrats who seem to have taken over education? The debate is coming to your doorstep.

Concordia will host a conference on the integration of new technologies into education on November 2 and 3.

Sponsored by McGraw Hill Ryerson publishers and several universities, the event is part of a series. Conferences were held in Winnipeg in March, and Victoria and London in May, and a Toronto conference is planned for October.

Finance Professor Arshad Ahmad, a 3M Teaching Fellow, and Educational Technology Professor Dennis Dicks are the organizers of the Concordia event, and it promises a lively variety of speakers on this wide-ranging theme. Demographer David Foot, whose book Boom, Bust and Echo continues to make him one of the continent’s most sought-after speakers, will be one of them.
