CICan – Call for Conference Proposals

Theme:  Navigating Anew

Deadline:  Monday, November 8, 2021

CICan’s annual conference is the largest event of its kind in Canada! It fosters connections between post-secondary institutions from across the country and around the world. In 2022 these connections will focus on navigating anew in this fast forward future.

About the Theme
From sea-to-sea, the waters around us haven’t always been smooth. We have been adjusting our sails and adapting to the changing tides as we have pursued opportunities and met challenges. This has been especially true in recent years, as the world experienced unprecedented change and unparalleled disruption. In fact, it could be argued that the entire higher education sector has seen its future arrive 10 years early, with the pandemic forcing it to completely rethink the delivery of programs and the recruitment of students at a record pace. In short, we are in an exciting and interesting place in time … we are navigating anew.

The conference will be organized into six streams, outlined below. Indigenous education as well as equity and inclusion will be woven through all streams and topics. All sessions should offer reflections on opportunities, or lessons learned, for the future of the college and institute system in this fast-moving future.

-Governing the Vessel
-Charting Teaching & Learning
-Navigating the Economy
-Mapping Sustainability
-Steering Innovation
-Sailing Globally
