Comments from our CAUCE 2023 delegates (Extended Education, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg):

I think the organizers did a great job in putting together a conference that was meaningful for many different professionals who engage in continuing education — 2023 delegate 

The conference sessions and networking opportunities are a wonderful way for those in the continuing education sector to discuss topics that are important to us and see what other in the sector are doing — 2023 delegate 

We offer two modes of delivery for our 2024 conference: in-person and hybrid. Please see bleow for complete details.
