WELCOME

Dean’s Message Welcome to the School of Continuing Education. MacEwan University has a long history of delivering exceptional continuing education programming. We are proud to offer a wide range of interesting programs and courses this year that we hope will provide you with new skills and career options, thoughtful exchanges with your instructors and other learners, as well as opportunities to see the world through a different lens. Our professional development certificates are designed to provide you with specific workplace skills, often in preparation towards professional designations such as the Project Management Professional (PMP®) and the Board Certified Assistant Behaviour Analyst® (BCaBA®). You may choose to take individual courses or an entire certificate. Many of our professional development programs are designed to meet current and emerging employment opportunities. For example, the new Global Logistics Management professional development certificate, which was developed in collaboration with the Supply Chain Management Association Alberta (SCMA AB), is a reflection of changes in the workplace that require an international understanding of the acquisition and movement of goods and services. Our new Behavioural Interventions certificate of achievement was developed in collaboration with the department of Psychology at MacEwan University’s Faculty of Arts and Science and the Centre for Autism Services. Addressing the need for training in applied behavioural analysis, and partially filling the requirements for (BCaBA®) certification, this program is the first of its kind in western Canada. In addition to professional development courses, we offer a wide range of art and design, language, personal development and skills courses to help you in your workplace or to assist you in your lifelong learning pursuits. Our Corporate Training team can also help your organization with customized training solutions. Please join us for an exciting year at the School of Continuing Education at MacEwan University.

2016/2017 SPECIAL EVENTS Dean’s Lecture Series

Engage with faculty researchers, scholars and guest lecturers at MacEwan University’s School of Continuing Education Dean’s Lecture Series. These thought-provoking and inspiring presentations showcase the university’s leading-edge research and scholarly activity. This noon-hour series is free of charge and open to all. Get ready for some stimulating discussion! For more information, call 780-497-5082.

Organic Transformations within the Tagish Lake Meteorite: From firstgeneration organics to the building blocks of life Meteorites, which originate primarily from the asteroid belt, are samples of the first solid materials that condensed out the solar nebula around 4.57 billion years ago. Studying meteorites gives us some insight into what conditions existed when our Solar System was formed. Our Tagish Lake stones, like other carbonaceous chondrites, have been found to contain many of the prebiotic compounds necessary for the creation of life. In this presentation, Dr. Hilts will explain how the results obtained from the various analyses performed on the Tagish Lake stones have helped him and his colleagues gain a better appreciation of the history of the organic chemistry that has transpired within the meteorite’s parent body. One of the major themes of the talk will be the role that hot water plays in the chemical modification of organics in asteroids. Guest Lecturer: Robert Hilts, PhD WE, OCT 19, 11:40 A.M.–12:20 P.M.

The Culture Value Index: Is it possible to measure culture? We hear from politicians, economists and media about the performance of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) so regularly that it has come to represent overall technical and social progress. But environmental, social and cultural well-being are not adequately captured by the GDP. The Culture Value Index (CVI) is a research instrument designed to address the cultural contribution to social well-being. Designed in partnership with ATB, the goal of the CVI is to account for the role that traditional practices, expressive practices, creative labour, sports, recreation, leisure, popular and fine arts engagement have in building a healthy community. If it is true that strong culture makes for a strong community, perhaps we could utilize the CVI to target strategic investments to make a positive contribution to social and personal well-being. Guest Lecturer: Michael B. MacDonald, PhD WE, DEC 7, 11:40 A.M.–12:20 P.M.

A Journey into Hockey Analytics Using Corsi Statistics Analytics are transforming the way we evaluate and predict hockey success. As a result, the NHL has expanded the availability of hockey performance metrics. Corsi statistics are the most popular of these metrics and come in many exciting variations. In this presentation, we will discuss the various Corsi statistics and their utility, and, most importantly, understand how they can be used to make predictions.

Believing That You Can Change: Growth mindsets in well-being and psychological disorder People differ in the extent to which they view well-being as amenable to change. While some view wellbeing as malleable and changeable (a growth mindset), others view well-being as rather immutable (a fixed mindset). Similarly, people differ with regard to whether they view disorders such as depression or anxiety as malleable or as fixed. These differences in mindset can carry important implications for such behaviours as attempting to enhance one’s well-being or deciding whether or not to seek treatment for a disorder. This presentation will discuss research at MacEwan regarding these mindsets in relation to well-being, as well as the relevance of these mindsets for understanding the change process for psychological disorders. Guest Lecturer: Andrew J. Howell, Ph.D., R.Psych. TU, APR 5, 11:40 A.M.–12:20 P.M.

Emotional Intelligence

When we look at the truly extraordinary people who inspire and make a difference, you will see that they do this by connecting with people at a personal and emotional level.
