The annual conference of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education comes to beautiful Cape Breton Island.  Our conference is inspired by the concept of sustainability and titled “learning to live, learning for life.” For us, this theme encompasses living in an economically, physically, and culturally sustainable way and integrating sustained learning throughout. 
We have invited two distinguished keynote speakers: Rex Murphy, who many will know as a CBC personality known for his word-smithing and lifelong passion for teaching; and Richard Gerver, who is inspiring teachers globally with his work on educational transformation.
We’re planning a great program, filled with stimulating presentations and workshops, engaging roundtables, and exciting activities outside the program.
