On Friday, the symposium will delve deeper into issues presented during the seminars with presentations from past SLAIS alumni, the Librarian and Archivist of Canada, the Privacy Commissioner of BC, and more.

The event will consider what and how students should be learning so they can assess information critically and generate new ideas in a society that is rapidly changing, why and how community partners are integral to the future success of students’ careers, what is the role of experiential learning in the curriculum, how the symbiotic relationship between theory and practice should be conveyed, whether graduate education should be centered on a specialized or on a general program, and what is the role of research and the importance of innovation in a professional graduate program.

Student registration is only 10$ and includes lunch for the symposium.

General registration is 45$ and also includes lunch for the symposium.
