About the summit

Times Higher Education Teaching Excellence Summit


Hosted by the editors of Times Higher Education, the global authority on university excellence, the Teaching Excellence Summit covers two full days of interviews, debates and discussions, and networking events including a gala dinner, drinks receptions, lunches and social events. As the first THE summit to be held in Canada, it will aim to explore three global themes that will greatly influence the future of higher education.

Topics will include


 

  • How we can overcome barriers to mobility and create clearer pathways for students to the world of educational opportunities that exist beyond their national borders.
  • How we can integrate more technology, including artificial intelligence in higher education? How do we leverage technology to improve teaching and learning.
  • How we can continually challenge ourselves to innovate and embrace artificial intelligence across the academy – not only in what we teach, but how we teach.
  • What is the role of universities in achieving access and building inclusive societies in an era of post-colonial and post-conflict reconciliation, migration, and social change?
