This fast-paced, day-long workshop is focused on encouraging a new generation of academic staff to become involved in their associations. The event happens in Ottawa the day before CAUT November Council and features a mix of open discussion, small group work and plenary presentations. After exploring the challenges confronting academic workplaces, participants will put their new knowledge to work in a scenario-based, skills-building exercise. Topics covered include collective bargaining, grievance handling, equity, casualization, academic freedom, graphic design, video production, communications and media relations. Space is limited so early enrolment is encouraged.
Please note that this workshop is offered in English only and there will be no simultaneous translation. At the completion of the workshop associations are encouraged to include workshop participants as observers to CAUT Council.
