CAGS is very pleased to announce that our next annual conference, on November 6-8, 2019 at the Lord Nelson Hotel in Halifax, will be focused on the theme, ‘Graduate Student Formation for the 21st Century.’
The critical problems and opportunities of the 21st century place great demands on our researchers, scholars, and professionals. We are in need more than ever for wisdom, critical thinking, adaptability, and commitment to the public good in our most highly educated citizens. Universities have profound opportunities and responsibilities to set the conditions where these holistic attributes can grow in the context of students’ deep learning and knowledge creation. What are these conditions, and how are we promoting the ‘formation’ of our future thinkers, change agents, and leaders?
We invite proposals for concurrent sessions at the conference on topics relevant to this theme, which may include:
The CAGS conference will provide the opportunity for authors to share research, practice and experiences through the following range of presentation types:
We welcome student participation in these sessions.
Proposals for concurrent sessions should include a working title, a brief description of its aims and goals, and the name(s) and affiliations of proposed speaker(s). Note that speakers are responsible for the costs of their travel and accommodation. CAGS will make necessary arrangements for audio-visual requirements.
Proposals are being accepted until May 30, 2019.
