About our 2021 lead-up events

To those of you aware of the efforts of the RWL12-Toronto organizing committee, its website and so on—you will already know that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision was made to postpone the conference from July 2021 to July 2022.

In order to continue to build towards a conference event that still seems so far away, our committee has decided to launch a series of online lead-up events to bridge the time and build interest in the type of work and learning research issues that will be discussed in Toronto on July 13-15, 2022.

Featuring live online presentations and interviews with leading international researchers as well as training and conferral sessions for graduate students, these activities will be targeted to both experienced and new researchers in our field of study.

Further details about these events will be provided in our newsletter series which will be available under this 2021 Lead-Up Events menu area when published.
