September 29th, 2021, 1:30pm - Reclaiming the Lost Year In this workshop, participants will reflect on their digital teaching, learning, and support experiences from 2020-21 and explore what they can retain from their complex experiences, whatever the future holds. This session is designed for those looking to integrate the last year into their career narratives.

Our presenter, Dr. Brenna Clarke Gray (she/her/hers), is Coordinator, Educational Technologies at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, British Columbia.

May 12th, 2021, 8:45am – Zen E-mail

Does email have you feeling overwhelmed and skeptical that it’s actually made the workplace better?

Banish your stress and join CapU’s CIO, Kristin Wilkes, for a session on achieving email zen and taking back control of your email inbox. This session will cover easy-to-follow email management principles using Microsoft Outlook to help you achieve the enlightenment of an empty email inbox and manage your email, instead of your email managing you. If you don’t use Outlook, not to worry – the principles and techniques can still be applied to your email client of choice.
