The SALTISE 7th Annual Conference is only 3 months away! The Conference Planning Committee has been working busily to bring you another enriching experience. This group is made up of over 20 faculty and staff volunteers from 8 of our local institutions, a true reflection of our SALTISE community. We thank them all for their time, dedication and commitment to making sure that the 2018 Conference will be a success. Reminding you of the upcoming deadline for submitting your proposals to the Conference – Tuesday, March 20th.
We are delighted to reveal the names of this year’s keynote speakers – Dr. Richard Felder, from North Carolina State University (Emeritus); his wife Dr. Rebecca Brent, President of Education Designs, Inc.; and Dr. Paul Denny, from University of Auckland. We owe a great debt to McGill’s Faculty of Engineering (eLATE) and Faculty of Science for providing the funding; and to our colleague Dr. Maria Orjuela-Laverde, co-coordinator of the eLATE project, for her efforts in securing these impressive speakers.
Announcing a call for nominations for SALTISE Teaching Awards. Do you know someone who should be recognized for the innovative teaching? Deadline for nominations, Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018.
Last but not least, stay tuned for the Conference registration announcement, coming later this month. Once again, SALTISE aims to maintain a FREE registration policy (within a given time frame) for its members. It continues to be one of our clear value statements that all our members have access to this annual event.
