What: The Canadian Network for Innovation in Education annual conference:
CNIE affiliated institutions are comprehensive, blending academic, professional and vocational cultues through both face to face and distance delivery modes, serving a vibrant and diverse student population. The confluence of these diverse elements has created synergy and innovative learning opportunities.
Through this conference, we provide an avenue to explore and discuss the innovative learning that can arise when various elements come together. Explore your own confluences of spaces, places and cultures and the creativity they bring to the learning process.
