GVMA 2021 Fall Conference

The ongoing battle with Covid-19 prevented us from meeting together this fall. However, we were pleased to meet online on September 23, 2021. Thank you to all who registered and attended.

THEME The global pandemic has presented a challenge to educators at all levels. This special seminar will focus on helping teachers understand the challenges that will be faced by them, their students, and post-secondary institutions, as they cope with the fractured 2019-2021 school years. We welcome Janet Takata from Conestoga College and Ian VanderBurgh from the University of Waterloo to lead a discussion about the challenges facing our COVID learners in transitioning to post secondary education. Following opening remarks by both speakers, attendees will be invited to make their own observations, and ask questions of the speakers.

RESOURCES We are pleased to make available both presentations, as well as a 90 minute recording of the seminar. Thanks to Janet and Ian for allowing us to share their work.

For those of you who have been able to attend our past GVMA Fall Conferences, Thank You.   The number of familiar faces, along with many new first time participants, always impresses us. We can see that Mathematics enthusiasm is thriving in the Grand Valley Mathematics Region!

We intend to be back in person next year!
