ETUG 25th Anniversary Conference

On these pages you’ll find all the latest information you need to know about the conference. You can also stay up to date with the latest conference information by following the ETUG Twitter account, or joining our Slack or LinkedIn communities.
For 25 years, ETUG’s annual conference has gathered the most dynamic and creative educational technology professionals from around the province of B.C. for an intensive, highly collaborative exploration of new educational technologies, best practices, and pressing issues in higher ed. ETUG’s impact has been felt by hundreds of educators, instructors, teachers— and ultimately students.
