Image: inviting international first year students for Engineering Co-op Bootcamp consults. Incentive: $15 on WatCard

Note: This event is only for first year International Engineering students.

The Centre for Career Action is facilitating consults in January 2023 to understand the experiences of students enrolled in the International Engineering Co-op Bootcamp. During the consults, we are interested in learning about how you navigated your first year of university as an international Engineering student, in-relation to co-op. We want to learn how we can improve the Bootcamp program for future prospective students. Whether you participated in the Bootcamp or not, your responses are vital to us as we work to create improved resources for other first year international Engineering students like you!

The study will take approximately 1 hour to complete. If selected, we will confirm the time of your session with you. After attending and participating in the consult, $15 will be added to your WatCard.

We will be facilitating both virtual and in-person consults, please complete the registration form to indicate your availability in January 2023. In-person consultations will be held in the Tatham Centre. If you are selected, we will send confirmation emails with more details.

In Honour of Andrew Levitt, celebrating the legacy of a Professor Emeritus dedicated to teaching on care, and with care.

Please join us for Cultural Districts, the lecture will be held from 6:30pm - 8:00pm in the Main Lecture Hall at the Waterloo School of Architecture.

The lecture will be feature panelists Tura Cousins Wilson, SOCA, Cheryll Case, CP Planning and moderator: Linda Zhang, Waterloo Architecture.

This is the second in a series of five lectures on the topic of maintenance.

Praxes of Care asks, “what is an architecture of care?” Over four terms–Fall 2021 to Winter 2023–a series of conversations will bring together two or more architects, designers, researchers, artists, activists, and care workers to discuss care processes according to the themes of Attention, Action, Communication, and Maintenance. The series is curated by faculty, staff, and representatives of student groups: Treaty Lands Global Stories, Bridge, and the Sustainability Collective. Recent calls for change have shifted the discipline toward the underlying social and ecological processes enabled by the production of architecture. By listening to and learning about care practices from interdisciplinary perspectives, we can begin to reshape the discipline of architecture into a form of care.
