December 2017 in Windsor

This year, we're holding the December meeting in Windsor, on Tues. Dec. 19. (Think of it as a Southern vacation!)

Here are some options for places to stay in Windsor (not an exhaustive list). (Check out the CAUBO preferred hotel rates.) A few of us have already booked at the Best Western Waterfront Hotel (Windsor).

The agenda is available (see the Google Doc here, or at the bottom of this page). We also have some supplemental info (map, parking, wifi details).

In some of the recent December meetings, there’s been a “Show & tell” of local facilities (e.g., laboratories, smart classrooms).  We won’t be doing that, but wanted to share a different type of resource with visiting oCUBErs. The UWindsor oCUBE contingent was impressed by a recent student mental health information session held here by Dr. Mohsan Beg, Director/Clinical Psychologist of the University of Windsor Student Counselling Centre. As educators, we often encounter students who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and other forms of distress, and few (if any) of us are trained in how to help them. We’ve arranged to have Dr. Beg join us to discuss "Identifying and Supporting Students in Distress” (11:00-11:50 AM).  

To help with planning (and connections for carpooling, etc.), we'd like to know who is coming! Please register from this link: December 2017 meeting registration. If you would like to go out for dinner with other oCUBErs on Dec. 19 &/or 20, please indicate that - we can make reservations closer to that week. 

We want to thank the University of Windsor Department of Biological Sciences for sponsoring our refreshments and lunch during the day on Dec. 19! As usual, dinner the night before (and that night) are informal - we typically do some group reservations for those who are interested, but we each pay our own way.
