Each year at the Learning and Teaching Conference, we come together to share practices, experiences, and insights about learning and teaching. This year our theme is Learning Together: Collaboration and Community at the Centre and we are excited to celebrate our learning community. At Ryerson, learning is a collaboration between students, faculty, instructors, and staff. We work together, creating and sharing knowledge, connecting learning inside and outside the classroom, learning in the community and on campus. Our theme recognizes all the ways we put learning at the centre of everything we do.

The Ryerson Learning & Teaching Conference Committee warmly invites all in attendance to the Poster Presentations and Cocktail Reception.
This session will give everyone attending the conference the opportunity to meet you and see your posters. Here's the basic information you need to plan your poster:
|Display tables will be rectangular and have enough space to display two posters. Tables will generally be shared by two presenters. We will provide 36" x 48" presentation boards, which fold into three panel sections.|
|For guidance in preparing your poster, download our handout on Creating an Academic Poster [pdf].|
|For more information, check out Creating Effective Poster Presentations.|
Look for a different approach to the poster presentation while staying within the spirit of the conference theme. Use text sparingly and consider more graphic and visual forms of communication. If you wish to provide a more detailed text, consider a handout, electronic mailing list, or other forms of extension.
Explore ways beyond the traditional 'conversation at the table' to involve participants in active learning and promote interaction with your poster. Identify learning outcomes and plan interactions that will foster the achievement of those outcomes. Some possibilities from recent conferences include interactive "draw-on" posters, encouraging additions by sticky-note, including puzzles or participant challenges to your poster.
All posters presented at the conference will be considered for The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education Poster Competition and will be eligible to receive The G. Raymond Chang Trophy.
The 2018 trophy for Best Poster was awarded to Mariam Hashemi Wong, MA, CPF, for Neuro-diversity for Educators.
