LANGUAGES & COMMUNICATION

Beginner Conversational German This introduction to the German language suits those who might know how to say “Ja” or “Nein,” but little more. It also suits those whose German was learned from grandparents, but who have not practiced what they learned.  Both groups will complement one another.  Learners who can understand and use some vocabulary will inspire novice learners.  The learners coming from a German background will have confidence to use their knowledge.  The mix results in a plus for both groups.  Lessons will include some, print materials, written notes, and basic grammar.  The Internet offers so much to enhance classroom instruction but will not be used more than to “spice up” the basic lessons based on communication.

Implicit Bias and Inclusion Jointly hosted by the City of Medicine Hat and Medicine Hat College Implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. Unconscious bias happens automatically, is outside of our control and is triggered by our brain making quick judgments and assessments of people and situations, influenced by our background, cultural environment and personal experiences.

Unconscious biases in the workplace can stymie diversity, recruiting and retention efforts, and unknowingly shape an organization's culture. In these workshops, you will learn the science behind implicit bias, how bias can manifest and how you can counter negative bias in your actions in order to create a more inclusive environment to live and work.

Facilitator: Dr. Valerie Pruegger, M.Sc. Psychology. Dr. Pruegger is currently the Director of the Office of Diversity, Equity and Protected Disclosure at the University of Calgary. Dr. Pruegger was honoured with the 2005 Legislative Assembly of Alberta award for her contributions and service to the people, communities and province of Alberta.
