Alaska and the Twitterverse: talking innovation in education

What does disruptive innovation look like in the higher education space?

How are we going to assess and measure learning outcomes in times of blended and online learning, big data and flipped classrooms?

These and similar questions brought me to Anchorage, Alaska to attend the Higher Education Teaching and Learning (HETL) conference with my colleague Doug Sparkes and one of our BETS students, Emma Reesor. We were invited to present a paper on our experience of developing the virtual incubation program (VIP).

From MBET to Montreal for an international tech conference

Our journey to Montreal to present our paper, "Providing Access to Education in Sub-Saharan Countries through Content-Oriented Technology" at the first IEEE International Humanitarian Technology Conference was an adventure to say the very least.

How do you recruit entrepreneurs? Think like one yourself!

As the Marketing and Recruitment Manager at the Conrad Centre I’m always looking for ways to meet budding entrepreneurs to tell them about the amazing opportunities for them at the University of Waterloo.

When I started in this role in 2012 I was overwhelmed by the vast entrepreneurship ecosystem both in Waterloo and across the country. I quickly began researching events, clubs, programs, and conferences, talking to the people in these spaces for their advice, and sorting out the best places to meet and engage with would-be entrepreneurs.
