The theme for this year’s Fall Meeting takes its inspiration from the words of Nigerian scholar and public intellectual Bayo Akomolafe: “The times are urgent; let us slow down.” We will focus on both our individual and collective well-being as educational developers with an emphasis on balancing the sense of urgency that we’ve recently experienced, given the complexity of these times and our work. We will explore the importance of doing urgent work carefully and thoughtfully, rather than hastily and reactively. To support this theme, we invite everyone to come to the Fall Meeting in the spirit of curiosity, critical reflection, and open-mindedness.
Given the ongoing influence of the pandemic, this year’s meeting will be held online, and will include both synchronous and asynchronous opportunities for our community to connect across the province.
