CASWE Institute

Hello CASWE members,

I am pleased to share with you below, details of our Institute, which will be held at CSSE in Toronto at the end of May.

We are very excited about our Institute, which will be held the first day of the official program, so instead of regular sessions, we have the following program designed for everyone who wishes to participate. Please also share this information with others who might be interested in joining us.

You can see from the program that we begin with lunch, followed by a video, panel, individual sessions, and a final plenary with Alice Pitt, Barbara Crow, and Carol Altilia, senior leaders from York University. This event is followed by a reception offered by Alice Pitt at her home in Toronto, to which you are all warmly invited. Please let me know if you are planning to attend, if you are bringing friends, or if you have any questions, so we can make sure we have enough room and enough lunch!

Please note: We are using different time slots than the CSSE program, which means there will be discrepancies between what you see on the conference app, and how the Institute will run. Please follow the attached schedule and not the conference app for the correct times.

All the best, Kathy
Kathy Sanford, EdD
