The Concurrent Education Student Association acknowledges that Queen's University is situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee territory.


Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring change.


Learning is more than absorbing facts, it is acquiring understanding.



Since its inception in 2002, Queen's Conference on Education has since evolved into the largest student-run annual conference at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. The conference is tailored towards anyone who is interested in expanding, enriching, and evolving their educational viewpoints. In the past, conference delegates have ranged from Queen's students in other faculties to external delegates from over fifteen other universities in Ontario.


QCE has provided hundreds of conference delegates with the opportunity to explore a number of themes in the world of education through keynote presentations and interactive workshops which range from discussing current issues in the field of education to a focus on professional development and refining practical and related skills. The conference also provides the chance for delegates to interact with peers who are also interested in teaching in the future.


Each year, the executive chooses a theme for the conference in hopes to share more about a specific subject that can impact all educators. Over the course of a weekend, QCE hopes to bring fellow future educators together into an environment of learning about oneself, others, and the workplace. During a delegate's stay in Kingston, they will experience two dynamic keynote speakers, a special lunch time speaker, three workshops to learn various aspects of education, and a banquet shared with fellow delegates. 


QCE 2020 aims to provide a conference like no other and hopes to make it a milestone of all delegates' undergraduate career.
