Purpose of this Event

  • Showcase innovative practice at various institutions across Nova Scotia in the area of technology enabled learning including recent projects delivered through Higher-Ed IT Shared Services.
  • Present the current findings of the system support sub-committee’s feasibility study with faculty across the province.
  • Foster cross-institutional and provincial awareness of the innovation occurring around technology in education and the national digital research infrastructure.
  • Celebrate the 25th anniversary of ACORN-NS as the regional partner to CANARIE.

Stakeholders Involved

  • Nova Scotia’s Department of Labour and Advanced Education
  • Technology Enabled Learning Working Committee
  • Higher-Ed IT Shared Services (HISS) & ACORN-NS

Technology-Enabled Learning Working Committee works to facilitate student learning through the increased use of current technology, including distance education, online education, and blended learning.  They have representation from most all of the post-secondary institutes across Nova Scotia and work in cohort with Labor and Advanced Education.

Higher-Ed IT Shared Services is a collaboration of NS’s 11 Post Secondary Institutions with a vision guided by the principles of sharing to achieve the results of improved IT service delivery, IT cost savings and avoidance, and more effective use of IT resources. Through ACORN-NS these same 11 members govern the Nova Scotia GigaPOP (Gigabit Point of Presence) on Canada's National Research and Education Network (NREN). The NREN is an essential collective of people, tools, services and digital infrastructure that provides a collaborative environment to advance Canadian leadership in research, education and innovation. The NREN connects Canada’s researchers, educators, and innovators to each other and to data, technology, and colleagues around the world.
