CANHEIT is coming to Queen's in 2017

Connecting teachers to students, students to success and us to each other - HumanITy

Technology is the key resource that supports teaching, learning and research in higher education. Queen’s University is delighted to partner with the Canadian University Council of Chief Information Officers (CUCCIO) to bring the annual Canadian Higher Education Information Technology (CANHEIT) Conference to Canada’s first capital, the beautiful City of Kingston, from June 13-16, 2017.

CANHEIT is held under the patronage of CUCCIO. Representing the national voice of IT issues in Canadian Higher Education, CUCCIO represents 60 Canadian universities who serve more than 95% of Canada’s university students and aims to drive research, operations and learning through IT innovation in higher education institutions.

This year’s theme focusses on how information technology connects us all – from teaching with technology in the classroom to research and results in a lab.

With over 450 delegates expected to attend this year’s conference and keynotes from leading thinkers and innovators in the technology and higher education fields, CANHEIT is the only conference of its kind in Canada.

Not only will delegates have the opportunity to demonstrate leadership through your presence at Canada’s premier higher education technology conference, there will be opportunities to network with fellow administrators, CIOs and other decision –makers.

CANHEIT 2017 will combine conference features such as keynotes by leading Canadian IT thinkers and technologists with innovative new program features and networking events. We’ve even got a robust social calendar, offering more opportunities than ever for networking with delegates throughout the course of the conference.
