Before the World Stopped

Before COVID-19 stopped the world, Joe Kwan was able to complete some travel as a part of the Staff Enhancement Experience (SEE) Canada Grant. Joe will share his experiences collaborating with peers in web and app development at other universities. He will provide insight into the grant itself, including what motivated him to pursue the grant, as well as walk you through the process. Finally, Joe will tell you a little about what it was like travelling right before the pandemic stopped the world.
