Connecting Excellence Conference 2017: Eastern Region knowledge multiplier

On October 23rd and 24th, over 100 adult education practitioners, administrators and support networks convened at the Glen House Resort for the second Connecting Excellence in LBS conference (ConEX).

This year, the theme for the conference was numeracy, including presentations on: numeracy learning strategies; what the latest EQAO data is telling us about secondary school math curriculum, and; how to write numeracy tasks.

However, it wasn’t all math all the time and conference attendees also learned about transitioning learners from high school to employment; legal life skills for job seekers; motivational interviewing, and; using gamification motivation in the classroom.

Conference evaluations have indicated a wholehearted appreciation for the conference and the programming that was offered. Thanks to our many presenters and volunteers who made this year’s conference a resounding success!
