“We look forward to highlighting our interdisciplinary approach to teaching, learning and career-integrated learning,” said Mary Jane Carroll, Associate Dean, Faculty of Animation, Arts & Design at Sheridan and part of the conference organizing committee. “Education will play a vital role in shaping and responding to social, political and technological changes, and we hope to facilitate important dialogue around these topics at this conference.”
