CAGS Virtual Symposia

24-27 November 2020

 

In recent months CAGS has made a commitment to expanding its offering of virtual content, and to providing opportunities for engagement between our members and the higher education community at large.

 

Building on the success of its summer webinar series, CAGS is pleased to announce its newest online event – the 2020 CAGS Virtual Symposia, to be held from 24-27 November. This free, week-long event will feature four unique webinars on some of the most pressing issues facing graduate education in Canada, including mental health and wellness, remote graduate supervision, adapting to the new normal, anti-black racism, and inclusion. Discussions on these topics will be led by a diverse group of presenters from across Canada, including deans of graduate studies, faculty members, administrators, and graduate students. The goal of this virtual event is to provide a forum for sharing information and experiences, posing questions, and building strategies for adapting to our new environment.

 

The 2020 CAGS Virtual Symposia will be conducted using the Zoom video conference platform. The webinars are free of charge and registration is open to all deans, associate deans, faculty members, administrators, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students. The webinars will be presented in English, and French interpretation will be provided simultaneously through a third-party service.

 

See below for a brief description of the webinars offered in this series and their associated Zoom registration links. Please feel free to share this email or the attached PDF document among your networks.
