LSAC 2013

Members of the Academic-Zone team will be attending the 2013 LSAC National Conference. This year’s event runs from May 22 to 24 at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (Richmond Campus). The conference theme is The New Face of Learning: Transforming Lives. Lives are transformed through learning in many different ways, the conference looks to capture a variety of the different techniques used to bring this theme to life.  The conference schedule is packed with a variety of interesting workshops, tech-talk presentations, poster sessions, and keynote speakers; all illustrating different ways to transform lives through learning.
