2021 Mini Forums

We had a number of CETABC Mini Forums in 2021

Start-Up CS: De-Risking your Program Design by Leveraging the Power of Start-up Methodology

Presenter: Joyce Ip, Director, Strategy and Analytics, Capilano University

Your team may have been referred to as the "start-up" or "incubation" unit in your institution, but what does this mean and how can this help de-risk your offerings and strategy? This 90-minute introductory workshop will review key concepts of the lean start-up methodology and include practical exercises for identifying product/market fit, rapid prototyping (such as minimum viable products - MVPs) and scalability.

Pandemic Pedagogies: Reclaiming the Lost Year

Presenter: Dr. Brenna Clare Gray, Coordinator, Educational Technologies, Thompson Rivers University

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.

Getting our Ducks in a Row

Presenter: Claire Sauvé, Associate Director CS, Vancouver Community College

This workshop is intended primarily for managers and directors, particularly for those working on collaborative CETABC projects. In this interactive workshop, we’ll look at the communication tools that we can use (including our MS Teams channel) and formalizing our collaboration strategy.

Zen Email

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.
