Boundless 2023

April 20 | In-Person & Online | 5 pm to 9 pm PDT

The Okanagan School of Education is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Graduate Student Symposium on Thursday, April 20, 2023 —Boundless. This hybrid event, for both attendees and presenters, will be hosted online (via Zoom) and in-person, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. PDT.

Boundless is intended to serve as a gathering space for OSE graduate students, faculty, alumni, and community practitioners to share in scholarship that spans a wide spectrum of research and teaching interests and areas of study.

This event reflects the boundless and borderless nature of education and research, as scholar-practitioners embrace the modern realities of the current global climate.

Boundless is an opportunity to share research and experiences in education, to grow our understandings of teaching and learning through presentations and conversations, and to enjoy a social event in our OSE community.


While the event is free to attend, we ask that you please register by April 17, 2023.
