We will explore the ways in which we can create inclusive and inviting learning communities, where instruction is differentiated to meet the needs of all learners.

About Ignite Sessions

Presenters prepare 20 slides on a topic of their choice, which automatically advance every 15 seconds. Slides should be mostly images. The result is a fast and fun presentation which lasts just 5 minutes. The presenter will then facilitate a 50-minute discussion on the ignite topic. It must be connected with the VANAS theme or with current educational research and practice.

About Workshops

Workshops will be 1 hour in length. These are an opportunity for you to share your expertise with your colleagues, ideally through a hands-on, participatory session.


ECA recommends the following two hotels, and will provide transportation from both hotels to ECA on the morning of the 17th at 7:30am. We will provide return transportation to the hotel at 5:15pm following the social. If you choose to stay at a different hotel, transportation will be on your own. Transportation will also be provided for those staying at one of these hotels for our pre-conference on the 16th.
