December 2018 at Waterloo

oCUBE Unconference December Meeting : Waterloo 2018 Welcome!

Join us in Waterloo for the 2018 December meeting in Waterloo, on Monday Dec. 10.

Travel in by plane, train, or automobile to join in a day of oCUBE camaraderie after the hectic fall term - to pick up new teaching ideas or just blow off some steam. There are a variety of hotel options in Waterloo although the closest to campus would be the Delta (; a list of UW-supplied recommendations can be found here. (Check out the CAUBO preferred hotel rates - note that the Delta is on this list).

The agenda is available via the oCUBE webpage (see the Google Doc here). For help navigating campus, follow this link for UW campus information.

This year the organizers have arranged an experiential learning-focused panel to describe how we provide students hands-on time, from the course to the institutional level. With 19,800+ students in 120+ different programs, Waterloo co-op is a juggernaut that has driven the development and implementation of numerous others options to facilitate and recognize student experiential learning. Panel speakers will briefly present some of these activities, after which panelists will be available for a brainstorming Q&A period. We have called this Experiential Learning “The Waterloo Way”, to make use of some campus marketing-speak, and we look forward to having a lively discussion about all varieties of experiential learning, from laboratory ideas to workplace-integrated learning experiences.   

To better plan the day’s schedule and help coordinate carpooling, please register using the December 2018 meeting registration form. If you are interested in joining oCUBErs for an informal dinner on Dec. 9 &/or 10, please indicate this in the form - we will communicate venue closer to the meeting date.

The UW organizing committee is excited to see you all again and to host what we hope will be a great December meeting!

Note: As part of the meeting coffee/tea/snacks and lunch will be provided, and we would like to thank the University of Waterloo Biology Department, Macmillan Education, and Nelson Education Ltd., for their generous contributions. A group dinner on Dec. 9 and/or 10 is optional for those in the area, and as is customary is not provided by the organizing committee.
