- how to keep information secure,
- beginner and advanced training on MyEducation BC tools, and,
- upcoming application and service enhancements.
In addition, attendees will have a chance to network through “birds of a feather” and other sessions. School district-led workshops will be a key feature. Watch the Event Schedule for the latest information on our tracks and workshops. A draft schedule will be available soon.
