Spring 2018 Conference – Program and Slides


From Theory To Practice

Conference Date: Saturday, May 12
Conference Location: Acadia University
Patterson Hall
24 University Ave
Wolfville, NS

The conference theme: From Theory to Practice

Is there a movement, or progression from one to the other? Couldn’t practice inform theory?  Or, does this theme cast a wide net and represent a range of ideas and everything in between?

However we look at it, this conference tapped into the collective training and experience of our membership to share what works, how it works, and why it works.
