CSSHE Pre-Conference Workshops

This year CSSHE offers 3 Pre-Conference Workshops on topics essential for individuals connected to higher education. Consider registering for a workshop and add a Certificate of Completion as part of your professional development training.

Pre-Conference Workshop 1: Addressing Gender-Based and Sexual Violence in Higher Education: Strategies for Advocacy and Action

Facilitator: Clea A. Schmidt, Ph.D., University of Manitoba
Time: Saturday May 30, 1-5pm
Price: $50, includes workshop materials, coffee break and CSSHE’s Certificate of Completion.
Description: While gender-based and sexual violence are by no means new issues, they are currently receiving heightened attention in Canadian higher education among other contexts due to a combination of current legislative requirements, the fallout from public scandals facing many colleges and universities, and social movements such as #MeToo and #TimesUp. However, many prevalent institutional practices and policies are reactive in nature and focus primarily on risk aversion and liability management to the detriment of critical, research-informed, and survivor-centred approaches that comprehensively address violence and the institutional cultures that promote and sustain it. This workshop engages participants with current concerns and practical actions higher education stakeholders can undertake to more appropriately address gender-based and sexual violence in their contexts.  Among other interactive components, we will discuss and debrief original case studies of widely applicable higher education scenarios to better understand the depth and breadth of issues and to generate advocacy-oriented responses in a range of research, pedagogical, and administrative settings.  

Pre-Conference Workshop 2: Behind the Scenes: Organizing an Engaging and Impactful Conference in Higher Education

Facilitators: Erica Jung, University of Manitoba; Nadiia Kachynska, University of Toronto; Clara Kim; University of Toronto; Emma Sabzalieva, University of Toronto; Diane Simpson, University of Toronto.
Time: Saturday May 30, 1-5pm
Price: $50, includes workshop materials, coffee break and CSSHE’s Certificate of Completion.
Description: We all attend numerous conferences, but what are the elements that make a conference attractive, meaningful and impactful? This workshop is designed to share experiences and develop a list of best practices for organizing an impactful conference in the field of higher education. This preconference workshop will be interesting to academics and professionals in higher education who have, will be or are interested in organizing a conference. The panelists/co-facilitators will share their experience with participants culminating in a summary of best practices for executing an engaging and impactful conference.

Pre-Conference Workshop 3: Post PhD Careers; Within and Beyond the Academy

Panelists: Loleen Berdahl, Ph.D, University of Saskatchewan; Holly Catalfamo, Ed.D, Niagara College; Kathleen Clarke, Ph.D, Wilfrid Laurier University; Dustin Lippert, PhD, University of Manitoba; Cheikh Ould Moulaye, PhD, University of Manitoba; Monica Munaretto, Ph.D Student, University of Toronto.

Facilitator: Phoebe Kang, University of Toronto
Time: Saturday May 30, 1-5pm
Price: $50, includes workshop materials, coffee break and CSSHE’s Certificate of Completion.
Description: Each year Canada sees over 6000 PhD graduates of which about 1200 join the university in tenure track positions. The other 80% of the graduates use their knowledge and research skills in a range of careers. While some will take up posts in industry, colleges, government and not-for-profits a number join the academy as higher education professionals, occupying what Celia Whitchurch defines as the “third space”; encompassing professional and academic domains. Join an interactive group of panelists as they share their experiences both as PhD students and post PhD in the workplace.
