Teaching for Transformation: Annual Conference+ (TforT:AC+) 2024
This year’s theme:

Teaching toward Collaborative Approaches to Care

SAVE THE DATE! March 25-27, 2024

Teaching for Transformation: Annual Conference+ (TforT:AC+) is a three-day immersion in the education paradigms and practices needed for today’s health care work. The theme for TforT:AC+ 2024 is Teaching toward Collaborative Approaches to Care. TforT:AC+ involves paired dialogic keynote sessions, workshops, short talks (submitted abstracts), dialogic roundtables, and space for open dialogue. TforT:AC+ will take place online, enabling an international reach.

TforT:AC+ is more than a conference. Registration is limited to foster a dialogic learning environment. Additionally, registrants will gain access to a private website of resources and activities for their ongoing use and an online community for continued resource sharing and mutual support.

This conference is relevant to health and social care providers, educators, researchers, health/education policy and decision makers, patients/family partners, caregivers, students, and all individuals who share an interest in advancing the theories and practices of humanistic and transformative education and critical pedagogies and practices.
