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
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 continents most sought-after speakers, will
be one of them.
