Energizing is the Easy Part: Negotiating Institutional Tensions for Sustaining Community-University Engagement
Linda Hawkins is the co-founder and director of the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute and the Research Shop at the University of Guelph. She designs and facilitates interdisciplinary community-university research partnerships, and works with faculty, students and community to create innovative responses to institutional challenges and other impediments to quality engagement. She also serves as co-chair of the Guelph Lab, a partnered approach by the City of Guelph and the university to convene policy-makers, citizens (broadly defined), researchers, students and civil society organizations towards greater public participation, more open government, and a more open university.
Using Machine Learning to Predict the Future Research Workforce
Associate Professor Inger Mewburn has specialised in research education since 2oo6. She is currently the Director of Research Training at the Australian National University where she is responsible for co-ordinating, communicating and measuring all the centrally run research training activities and doing research on student experience to inform practice. Aside from editing and contributing to the Thesis Whisperer, she writes scholarly papers, books and book chapters about research student experiences, with a special interest in the digital practices of academics.
INTERDISCIPLINARY CSSHE/CSSE/CASIE SESSION
Addressing the Truth and Reconciliation Recommendations in Education: K-12 and Postsecondary Responses and Possible Futures
Monday May 30th 1:30PM-2:45PM (Mountain Time)
Since the release of the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, members of the educational community have been exploring ways to incorporate its recommendations. This panel discussion explores responses, reflects on changes that have occurred, and looks at the educational future for first nations and non-first nations students alike.

Donations and Service Learning
This year, we are working with the University of Calgary to contribute to the community in two ways. First, throughout the CSSHE meeting, we are encouraging members to donate money or non-perishable food items to the UofC Student Food Bank.
Second, we are working with the UofC’s Centre for Community-Engaged Learning to provide Community based learning opportunities on June 1st. There is limited availability for these events so register early! Registration and more information about the partnering organizations can be found on the CSSHE website and here.

Affinity Group Meetings
In order to facilitate discussion about topics of common interest to members, we will provide time in the program for affinity group members to gather and meet. This time is intentionally allocated at the end of each day to encourage discussion that extends into social time.
Information for Presenters:
For each session, and where appropriate, the last presenter will serve as the chair for the earlier presentations, and the first presenter will serve as the chair for the last presentation. They facilitate the sessions by introducing speakers, keeping time, and moderating questions. Time sheets will be provided in each room for the presenters.
Please note that the posters should be no larger than 36″ [91 cm] tall x 48″ [121 cm] wide so that we can accommodate them all. For those who are unsure about how to create a poster and would like a tutorial or are interested in templates, we recommend this resource: http://www.lindaapps.com/conference-posters/.
All paper presentations should be accompanied by a paper. The papers can be emailed to email@example.com up to two weeks before the conference. They will be posted online in a shared drive one week prior to the conference. NB: The papers are not submitted for publication by formatting them in this way and there is no implied agreement; it is up to the discretion of the authors of each individual paper where they would like to submit for publication. The conference is an opportunity to share work before it is published and to receive feedback for revisions and refinement before submission to publication. In the spirit of the conference supporting the future publication of paper presentations, we recommend that all papers be formatted according to the CSSHE’s journal, the Canadian Journal of Higher Education, requirements, posted here: http://ojs.library.ubc.ca/index.php/cjhe/about/submissions#authorGuidelines
Roundtables do not require a paper submission. All roundtables will have 2-3 papers that are related in topic, where the authors will take turns discussing their work with participants. Presenters may want to bring copies of their papers or a laptop to highlight or illustrate their ideas.
Ignite sessions will have 5 minutes to present and the session will end with a Q&A session. Authors should bring their presentations on a flash (usb) drive for uploading in advance of the presentation.
Symposium presenters are not required to bring papers to the session or to upload them, but are invited to submit them, if they are available. All symposium proposals should have included a moderator or session chair in the proposal; one will not be assigned.
Rooms booked by the society for presentations and events 29 – 31 May 2016 will be equipped with the Basic Presentation (AV) Package. It is recommended that participants who plan to use a PowerPoint presentation should bring their electronic presentation on a thumb/flash drive. The Basic Presentation (AV) Package in each room includes:
- Data projector
- Projection screen
- Internet access
- Sound system
Any questions can be directed to either the Program Chair, Michelle Nilson (mnilson@sfu) or Program Co-Chair, Kathleen Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org).
