The Magic Model:  Tips for the New Co-op Professional

Looking for program inspiration?  Bring a little magic to your career and program!  Promote excellence in the practice of cooperative education by providing quality service to your students and employers.  This collaborative session will provide a magical, modeling tool you can use to view where your program currently stands and presto-change-o, where you can aspire to be in the future.  Together we will look at your program philosophy, goals, policies and procedures, reputation, institutionalization, marketing, obstacles and implementing change. Steps will be reinforced with examples and participants will walk away with a magic modeling tool and workbook to apply to their own program. A guest panel of experienced co-op wizards will open the session with how to spin co-op opportunities into gold. Q&A.

Effective Tools, Techniques, and Technologies for the Distance Classroom

By popular demand, this session is a follow-up to the "Selection and Implementation of Effective Tools  and Technologies  for Distance Learning" presentation at CIEC 2008. This hands-on workshop will lead participants through a series of mini presentations, discussions, and activities that enables them to identify, compare, contrast, and use the tools, techniques, and technologies presented as well as consider their application in the distance classroom. The tools, techniques, and technologies presented include course design models, learning management systems, synchronous and asynchronous tools, Web 2.0 technologies (such as podcasting, blogs, and wikis), media creation tools, HTML editors, and accessibility tools.

Transforming Human Potential into Work:  An Intercultural Competence Strategy

Cultural diversity – including national, ethnic, gender, generational, and professional differences – can be either an impediment or an asset to innovative thinking in engineering work. The key to deriving the potential value of diversity is attaining competence in intercultural communication. This workshop will present a framework for identifying relevant cultural differences and predicting misunderstanding in engineering settings, with examples drawn from the presenter’s work with engineers in corporate and academic contexts. The session will also review a model for developing intercultural competence that can guide more effective educational curriculum and training design.

The Toothpick Factory© A Simulation Game for the Soft Skills

The goal of The Toothpick Factory is to stimulate awareness of the importance of soft-skills in the workplace. More specifically, participants are expected to rehearse, become aware, identify and reflect on a set of soft skills affecting their performance in teams (e.g. communicating effectively, leading, listening and being flexible). The key to the success of the simulation rests upon the effective facilitation skills of the faculty or trainer.  The participants of this workshop will be able to:

            • Plan their own sessions.
            • Facilitate the simulation.
            • Facilitate the reflective process that follows the game.
            • Integrate the simulation into specific curriculum.
            • Culminate the activity and stimulate knowledge transfer.
