It’s that time of year when post-secondary educators put their heads together to talk about their work and experiences with communities of practice. BCcampus will host the 2011 Online Community Enthusiasts Day May 12 in Vancouver.

This year’s theme is “Planning Excellent Community Events” and will be a full day of talking about and experiencing various event formats, strategies and technologies. This one-day gathering is open to anyone interested in online communities, particularly those in post-secondary education.

Where: Vancouver, Creekside Community Centre, 1 Athletes Way (near Science World)

When: May 12, 2011. Plan for 9:00 – 4:00, with the possibility of continuing the conversation elsewhere afterward.

Cost: The event is free and lunch is provided, so your costs include travel.

Here’s your check list:
