There’s still time to join us at CNIE!

Kamloops Lake

I’ve been woefully negligent on a number of blogging fronts. None more so than concerning next month’s Canadian Network for Innovation in Education Conference here at TRU – May 13-16.

A few of the many reasons I am looking forward to this conference:

Perhaps a little less thrilling, I am slated to deliver a keynote as well. Knowing I will need some help to begin to match the occasion, I’ve enlisted a DJ to keep the sonic environment lively and tidy.

I would add that this part of the country is extremely beautiful and distinct, and if you were to come to the conference I would advise staying a little extra and taking some time to explore the surroundings. This is one of the sunniest parts of the country, so the weather should be great in mid-May. We’ll be wrapping the event with a “Hoot & Howl” at nearby McQueen Lake led by TRU’s Dean of Science Tom Dickinson and First Nations Elder Estella Patrick Moller, with a birdwatching walk (the “hoot”) around the lake, followed by a “howl” for coyotes as night falls. Should be a fantastic way to enjoy some BBQ as the week winds down.

I hope you’ll consider joining us in the Loops for what I expect will be a fun, stimulating and memorable week in BC’s interior. There’s still a day left to register and receive the early-bird rate (see, I really was negligent not to blog about this sooner).
