ACCESS IN PRACTICE: PUTTING GREAT IDEAS TO WORK

Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario Conference

April 4-5, 2018
Toronto, Delta Hotel

Save-the-Date

There’s no shortage of work being done on access to higher education; Googling the phrase produces 228 million results in less than a second. The challenge is turning theory into practice, influencing policy and producing positive outcomes for students. That’s the focus and theme of HEQCO’s 8th annual conference – Access in Practice: Putting great ideas to work.

For educators from primary through postsecondary, for administrators, guidance professionals and governments, it’s time to put great ideas to work. Our singular ambition: to equip participants with the strategies to adapt, build, implement and assess initiatives that work for their students and their students. Our annual conference will feature interactive workshops, panels and speakers sharing best practices, current research and case studies in effective access and retention strategies.”
