Message From VP December 2014

CNIE Blog (December 2014)

As the Vice President of CNIE I’d like to welcome everyone to our monthly news! Members of our board will strive to provide you news regarding our association, upcoming events and interesting news from our desks in regards to innovation in education.

Our 2015 conference…

A quick update on our upcoming conference in 2015; as you may have noticed this year is our first year of working with the Canadian Association for University Continuing Education (CAUCE) to provide you with access to a joint event. Hosted by the University of Manitoba we hope you will join us for Beyond Diversity: Learning and Working in an Inclusive World this coming May. It is our hope that by collaborating with CAUCE that we can provide our members with a rich variety of speakers and presenters over the course of the three day conference.


Alberta’s provincial consortium, eCampusAlberta, supports online programming across our province’s public post-secondary institutions. There are some great resources available from this consortium including a monthly PD webinar. They also record the sessions and archive them – these sessions are all available through the eCampusAlberta Online Professional Development Events site at:; I presented in November on designing online programs.

Until next time….

As we come to the end of 2014, on behalf of the board of directors here at CNIE we would like to wish you a wonderful Christmas season and we hope to see you in 2015! In the meantime if you are interested in nominating someone to the board or if you would like to volunteer some of your time to the association please contact us at

Take care,
Kari Rasmussen
