Only 5 weeks until the ETUG Spring Workshop! Workshop organizers are busy with plans for “Innovation: What’s on Your Horizon?” hosted June 7th and 8th at Vancouver Community College (VCC) downtown campus.

ETUGspring2012badge 01Ever explored VCC downtown? Now’s your chance. With a rich and varied history the place is bustling, like a city within a city. It has its own fine dining establishment JJ’s, a bakery, hair salon and spa, and dental clinic! It is really great to see students in action in these hands-on teaching and learning environments. The campus is very easy to get to; just 2 blocks from the Stadium Skytrain station.

On June 6th (afternoon) JustID will get things started with a “pretug” event: “Innovations in ID“. Then all are invited to gather at The Charles Bar in Gastown for our ETUG pub night.

Thursday morning Alexandra Samuel, Emily Carr University will give the keynote. We are excited for the chance to hear her speak. Take a look a her bio and review many of the wonderful facilitators and sessions scheduled over 2 days of ETUG. On Thursday night, you can join ETUG for a Westcoast dinner buffet prepared by VCC Catering. Dinner is included with your workshop registration and is great opportunity for an evening out with your colleagues and friends.

A “showcase of innovation” is being planned so watch for the Call for Participants. As always at ETUG, there will be lot opportunities for excellent networking and sharing of ideas. On Friday afternoon, Griff Richards, Thompson Rivers University will facilitate a plenary session when we can discuss and reflect on our best workshop”take aways” before departing for summer adventures.
