Call for Presentations
Conference Theme: Leaders of the PACK: Leadership & Advocacy in University Continuing Education
Leaders of the PACK speaks to the role that we as continuing educators play as we push and pull the academy into new ways of teaching, learning and engaging with the community. It also speaks to some of the most important issues and professional development challenges identified by the Continuing Education community in the CAUCE members’ survey (2009 CJUCE).
Do you have a message to share about renewing and revitalizing programs? Have you discovered new ways to influence your University? How do you advocate for the communities you serve? In what ways are you acting as an agent of change for your institution? These are some conversations that will take place at CAUCE 2012.
Concurrent sessions should address topics from one of four themes:
P—Program Innovation What strategies help us to stay innovative in our programming?A—Advocacy How can we increase our influence within the University and advocate for ourselves, for lifelong and distance learning, and for the learners and communities we serve?C—Change How can we help universities adapt to the changes that we see first?K—Knowledge We have a responsibility to help our communities stay ahead of the changing information and skills required for a knowledge economy. How can we best do that?
We invite speakers to submit presentations that inspire out-of-the-box thinking, provoke debate, or stimulate new conversation on how to advocate for the importance and value of continuing education in a competitive learning environment—inside our institutions and outside in the global community.
