HE NAVIGATES CHANGE WITH EASE

Business

You can’t work in the oil and gas industry for a quarter century without experiencing ongoing waves of change. For some, the process is stressful and full of fear and resistance. Others, however, embrace the ebb and flow and enthusiastically explore where it can take them.

20

Tom Morin — a card-carrying member of the latter group — is dedicated to helping those in the former group navigate change with the least amount of stress. In his 25 years in the oil and gas industry, Tom has utilized various models of organizational change, creating programs and implementing them through large organizations. In 2014, he enrolled in the Organizational Change Management Extension Certificate at Mount Royal University to formalize his education in the field. “I’ve been studying since the early 2000s and I’m quite fluent in various change management programs and processes out there. What I like most about the model that Mount Royal uses is that it is, by far, one of the most comprehensive and most customizable models out there,” Tom says. The embodiment of MRU’s “You Belong Here” theme, Tom is now an instructor in the Continuing Education department. And he sits on Mount Royal’s Organizational Change Management Advisory Committee, in addition to all the other hats he wears. “Now, I am working part-time in oil and gas and building up my consulting business, Work Innovation Partners. I am teaching at MRU and communicating through my blog. I’m also working on my doctorate,” Tom recounts.

How has studying change affected his own journey? “It has allowed me to manage change in my own life, mostly on the working side of things. I understand where I am now and where I want to go. I can listen to why I am resisting something and then manage those concerns. It helps me get from A to B with a lot less stress.” Tom says of Preparing for Change, the course he teaches, “We start with a bit of instruction, then apply it to a solid, real-world case study. We are working on the same cases for two days. By the end of it, they (students) have built a robust change scenario for that organization. And often, the ‘A ha!’ moment comes from people’s personal experiences in an organization. ‘Now, I get it! This is why this didn’t work out for us. If I had done this, or if we had done that, it would have turned out differently.’” Change management, once seen as a niche skill, or a role reserved for the leadership team, is becoming a core competency for project managers and individuals alike, Tom points out. For those struggling to manage change, Tom has some practical advice. “Don’t think you have to change your role or become someone else to improve that part of your job. These courses offer affordable and accessible knowledge where you can learn something new. If you come in for a course on Friday and Saturday, on Monday you can start doing something different in your role and really bring value to the organization.

Change Management Guru Every day is full of variety for Tom as he works in the energy sector, consults in his own business, teaches MRU students and pursues his doctorate.

SHE SHOOTS, SHE SCORES!

Communications and Marketing

Jemma Young has all the right moves, stickhandling her way from being a student in Mount Royal University’s Social Media for Business Extension Certificate to overseeing Hockey Canada’s 50-plus socialmedia accounts.

40

“I really am that prime example of someone who has been through the program at MRU and gotten a job largely because of it,” says Jemma, Hockey Canada’s manager of social media. Jemma, who has a degree in Communications, was a marketing coordinator in Career Services at Mount Royal. She had a general idea of the direction she wanted to take with her career, so she enrolled in the Public Relations Extension Certificate in MRU’s Continuing Education to clarify that path. “As I was doing it, I found that I really liked being back in the classroom. I learned more about what was offered in Continuing Education. And when I saw the Social Media Certificate, I decided to do it as well,” Jemma says. “At one point, it was pretty heavy going with my course load and my work. I did both programs in two years. But that is one of the great things about Continuing Education at Mount Royal: it’s flexible to suit your situation.” Courses provide real-world, hands-on, results-oriented training, focusing on best practices in the field. In the Social Media Final Project course, students are paired with non-profit organizations in the Calgary area and tasked with developing a comprehensive social media plan. Jemma was partnered with Hockey Canada. It was a match made in heaven — Jemma grew up playing hockey in Lindsday, Ontario and has an affinity for the game and its place in the heart of Canadians. “I worked with two leads from Hockey Canada during the six-week project. The timing worked out that they were hiring a fulltime position,” the 28-year-old recalls.

“A lot of people say they have work experience in social media, but having that dedicated credential and training in the field gives you a level up on those who don’t have that educational component.” Joining the team at Hockey Canada in June 2014 as the social media co-ordinator kicked off the next phase of Jemma’s career. Two years later, she was promoted to her present position. Jemma utilizes social-media skills she honed at MRU in her daily work, which has global reach. Hockey Canada’s Twitter account alone has more than 320,000 followers. “At Hockey Canada, I work very closely with graphic designers, media relations, the video team and content creators. I could be in the office covering an event that is happening across the country — posting videos and live coverage — or I could be developing strategy. I could be posting all kinds of content across multiple platforms. And another piece of what I do is the educational piece: providing social media training with our athletes and educating and training staff on social media.” The variety and pace of her work keeps Jemma hopping, and that’s how this highenergy lifelong learner likes it. Jemma also spreads the word on the power of social media here at Mount Royal, teaching the Facebook for Business workshop. ‘Social media is an amazing marketing tool that is applicable to so many audiences. It’s so accessible and so cost-effective that students really see the benefits in their work. And you can definitely set yourself apart in your career by having that specific businessoriented training that MRU’s Social Media Certificate offers.”


Jemma Young Social Media Expert

Jemma, a former Mount Royal employee, completed a Public Relations Certificate and a Social Media Certificate on her way to score her dream job.

Marwa Gebeil

International Languages Student Marwa continues to improve her English and learn about Canada, on a path to get a Bachelor of Communications — Broadcast Media Studies at Mount Royal.


SHE TREASURES THE OPPORTUNITIES Although she’s learning to deal with Canadian winters, Marwa Gebeil can’t say enough about the “warm hearts” she’s encountered since coming to this country from Syria. And that friendly welcome includes the reception she’s experienced as a student at the Languages Institute at Mount Royal University.

The 24-year-old fled Damascus in 2014 after her 20-year-old sister was killed in the ongoing conflict. Along with her mother and surviving sister, Marwa spent a year in Lebanon before coming to Canada in the first wave of Syrian refugees. Marwa arrived in Calgary on her birthday. It’s a gift she treasures every day.

“It’s not just the English. They teach us about Canada, its laws and what is expected in the culture. And they teach us how to make conversations, too. They teach us how we can check for jobs, how to apply for jobs, the culture and things about the Canadian people,” Marwa says, her voice filled with enthusiasm. In Syria, Marwa worked part-time as an elementary school music teacher. She’d only been in her job for a year before leaving the country, having finished a two-year diploma at a teachers’ college. She also worked as a makeup artist and then as a travel agent in Lebanon. But her goal is to be a broadcast journalist. After completing her Academic English, she will upgrade her math at MRU in preparation for applying to the Bachelor of Communication – Broadcast Media Studies.

In that almost-overwhelming first year, Marwa and her mother settled in Calgary, finding a place to live and adjusting to their new life. Marwa, who had some high-school English, took a basic language course. But she knew needed to do more to achieve her dreams.

“I want to be able to go back to Syria one day. I want to be able to tell the people’s stories, to share them with everyone,” she says determinedly. “And I want to be able to tell them the stories from Canada, too.”

“I need to continue my education,” Marwa says. “I want to be a Canadian. I will do something good for Canada because they accepted us.”

Marwa urges others in similar situations to improve their language skills, which can open so many doors for them on the social and employment fronts.

Marwa chose Mount Royal University because she can upgrade a variety of subjects and “it’s easy for me to jump into university courses at MRU,” she says. Enrolled in January 2017, she is well on

“It’s easy. Just take your first step. Then another. It will be successful. Take the opportunity. You have the right to study. You have the right to try.”

Languages

“Our instructor showed us how to walk on the snow,” Marwa says, pantomiming the rolling sideto-side gait of the penguin walk familiar to everyone who’s navigated a slippery sidewalk. “Here at MRU, they are so nice. They give us all the feeling that we are in our new home. I love my teachers.”

her way to completing the Academic English level. Marwa appreciates that the instructors teach more than syntax and synonyms.

Karen Christensen Education Assistant Graduate Karen transformed her career from accounting to supporting teachers and students in the classroom.


SHE FOLLOWS HER PASSION The numbers are finally adding up for Karen Christensen. After a decades-long career in accounting, the 53-year-old is fulfilling her lifelong dream of working in the classroom.

“With this program, you are learning to be an Education Assistant, but you are also getting the foundation of being a teacher. You gain such a huge appreciation of what teachers go through every day,” Karen says. “I had always wanted to be a teacher, but life got in the way. It doesn’t always work out. So, here I am at my age, and in a position where I am ready to go for it.” Educational assistants support students as part of the educational team, as well as assist teachers. They facilitate the inclusion of special-needs students, nurture students’ development and perform a wide array of tasks in the classroom. “One of the things they teach you here at MRU is about diversity in the classrooms, out in the schools. But what I really enjoyed was the diversity we had in our classroom here at Mount Royal,” Karen says. Her classmates ranged from students just out of high school to recent immigrants to Canada, one of whom had a PhD. “It was all over the place, but everyone just seemed to click. We supported each other and it was like a real family.” And the support Karen and her classmates received from their instructors and staff here at MRU gave them a rock-solid foundation. “We had really good professors, outstanding material and good placement,” Karen says.

“The principals in the schools know what kind of quality, high-calibre students MRU is putting through the program. I believe that MRU students would be chosen first when it is time to do the hiring.” While she’s looking forward to earning her degree, Karen is most eager to live her passion: working with children and setting them up for success, just like her MRU family did for her. “I want to be in the classroom. I have done some work in Indigenous studies and I’m feeling a real pull to working with Indigenous kids. Really, being able to make a difference in a child’s life is an amazing opportunity.” Completing her Education Assistant Certificate has been an intense experience, and one that Karen says has changed her life for the better. “I think I’ve learned to be more patient and more tolerant. Sometimes you need to be the voice and the eyes and the ears of a child who doesn’t have that. I have always been a child advocate, so I just really want to do something where I feel I can make a difference.”

The lively grandmother of two is a recent graduate of Mount Royal University’s Education Assistant Certificate program.

Karen is there for the next wave of Education Assistants, too. She spoke to the incoming class at the request of a professor, sharing her experience and advice. She can’t say enough about the program, and is grateful for the doors it has opened. Having been in several educational settings, Karen thinks she and other graduates of the Education Assistant Certificate have an edge with potential employers.

Academy for Young Artists Entrance to all Academy programs is by audition only. Applications for 2018-19 will be accepted in the new year. An enrichment program providing intensive musical training of the highest quality to today’s outstanding young artists, The Academy Program offers participants a balanced, performance-based course of study, as well as opportunities to meet and perform with professional musicians and renowned teachers. Specific training includes: sessions with acclaimed musicians in private lessons; small group classes and masterclasses; individual sessions with an assigned collaborative pianist; chamber music coachings; frequent recitals aimed at developing confidence and stage presence; and, participation in a large ensemble for those students who play orchestral instruments.

The Academy Program offers gifted young musicians the opportunity to progress at an accelerated pace. Graduates who continue with their musical studies are much soughtafter by leading post-secondary music schools and performance ensembles in Canada, the United States and Europe. The Academy Program’s reputation is known and respected throughout the world.

Strings, Piano, Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion The Academy’s instrumental program is divided into distinct levels. Junior Academy: students benefit from the extensive technical enrichment provided at this level, with emphasis on developing technical proficiency and musical skills Intermediate Academy: students play advanced repertoire and continue to develop their performance skills Associate Academy: younger students playing advanced repertoire prepare for the Senior Academy Senior Academy: for musically mature students who are playing very advanced repertoire In addition, we are pleased to offer an Honours Class, which is suitable for extraordinary young talents accelerating at a pace beyond their age. New students are placed in the program based on the results of their audition, while those already in the Academy are required to re-audition yearly to maintain or move on to the next level. Students not placed into one of these levels may be considered for Academy Participant status.

The Academy guitar program is for enthusiastic, ambitious young players seeking a well-rounded music education. This cost-effective program is designed as a supplement to a student’s private guitar lessons, offering a group environment where they may further develop their playing ability, performance skills, theoretical foundation and overall musicianship. With Junior, Intermediate, Associate and Senior levels, the program includes dedicated young players, as well as aspiring professionals.

Voice This is a comprehensive, credit-free training program for singers ages 13 – 19 who exhibit a sincere desire and the vocal talent to become a classical singer. The vocal program is a supplement to private voice lessons, focusing on the educational needs of the developing singer and offering large and small ensemble performance experience. Singing in monthly recitals is required and lectures pertaining to the study of classical voice are part of this program. For full information on the Academy for Young Artists visit mru.ca/academy.

Wyatt Artist in Residence Program In music, as in other disciplines, artists often point to an educational encounter with or a transformational performance by a great artist as the inspiration for their commitment to a life in the performing arts. The Wyatt Artist in Residence Program strives to provide our Academy students with those transformational experiences, bringing them together with the very best mentors in their field and closing the loop between emerging talent and truly great artists of our time. This important component of the Academy for Young Artists was initiated by an anonymous supporter in honour of Hal Wyatt and his wife, Marnie. Since its inception, the Wyatt program has afforded our students the opportunity to hear and study with an incredible array of international stars in intimate masterclass settings. Past artists in residence include: James Ehnes, Nicola Benedetti and Ian Swensen, violin; Laurence Lesser, Lynn Harrell and Franz Helmerson, cello; Anton Kuerti, Gabriela Montero and Yuja Wang, piano; the Assad Brothers, guitar; Susanne Mentzer, Russell Braun and New York Polyphony, voice; and the New Orford and Vogler quartets. For more information, visit mru.ca/wyatt.

Through regular performances, participants gain valuable experience in a variety of settings for audiences that may consist of their peers, faculty members, guest artists and the public.

Creative movement is an important part of the program. Your child will develop coordination, concentration and self-confidence, while learning the fundamentals of music. This program provides a sound basis for children who wish to continue the study of music or dance. It is based on ideas developed by educator and musician Emile Jaques-Dalcroze. All classes are parented classes (parents are in attendance), 45 minutes long and held once a week.

Early Childhood Programs Kodály Classes Kodály musicianship classes create a playful atmosphere, where children use the voice as their first instrument. Children are actively engaged as they develop music reading and writing skills that prepare budding musicians for future studies. This includes: • in-tune singing • beat, rhythm, melody, form • phrasing, dynamics • tempo and timbre Xylophones and rhythm instruments are used to reinforce concepts first heard through singing. In advanced levels, the recorder is introduced to reinforce music reading skills. Parental involvement is an essential component of the Kodály program. Parents join their children for the final 10 minutes of each class and are encouraged to share musical activities at home. Children have weekly take-home activities to reinforce the lessons.

Kodály Prep Class Enrolment is accepted in Sept. or Feb., depending on your child’s readiness for an un-parented experience. $195

Early Childhood Programs Orff Classes Using their voices to speak and sing, and their bodies to move and dance, children in the Orff classes joyously progress from musical imitation to improvisation and literacy. The classes are based on things children like to do: sing, chant rhymes, clap, dance and keep a beat on anything near at hand. These instincts are directed into learning music by hearing and making it first, and then by reading and writing music later, as age appropriate. The students explore their own creative expression in a non-competitive atmosphere. The unity of music, speech and movement are essential in the teaching based on the ideas of Carl Orff. Through singing, dancing and playing on a wide variety of instruments, children learn music in a playful and holistic way. At the end of the term, each class has the opportunity to perform in one of MRU’s beautiful theatres. The whole family is invited to celebrate the children’s accomplishments. All Orff Classes are un-parented.

Orff Prep Classes This is an un-parented class, which introduces some of the fundamental elements of music in a playful and holistic way. The children sing, dance and play music on a variety of instruments and develop their intellectual, motor, emotional and social skills. $325

In addition to the intrinsic value of learning to play an instrument well, studies show there are many non-musical benefits for your child. These include: • more robust brain stem responses to sound • improved discrimination of pitch and segmentation, and enhanced neural processing of speech • better working memory and cognitive flexibility • enhanced reading abilities • greater spatial-navigational reasoning, visual form analysis, numerical discrimination and receptive vocabulary • increased finger motor skills

Early Childhood Programs Children’s Early Cello Ensembles Cello group classes are a wonderful complement to private lessons as they allow young cellists to experience the fun of making music with their peers. Children’s daily practice is inspired by sharing their weekly accomplishments through solo performance and being able to celebrate the success of their friends. Technique is improved through scale and arpeggio repetition, focus on in-tune ringing tones and maintaining fine cello posture. Beginning reading, rhythm, and music theory are actively put to use through unison two-and three-voice ensemble playing. This program provides weekly performance opportunities and four Saturday morning recitals each year, which feature the group and solo repertoire prepared in class. Classes include: • basic music, specific cello and chamber music skills • effective classroom, audience and performance behaviour • extended cello techniques learned through accompanied storytelling • weekly scale, arpeggio and technical bow work • important music theory and reading tools • solo performance opportunities with piano accompaniment • the inspiring experience of putting all of the above together, while creating music with their friends

Suzuki Programs Programs

Guitar

For 3 Year Olds Plus All Mount Royal University Conservatory Suzuki programs are endorsed by the Suzuki Association of the Americas and the European Suzuki Association. Each program delivers musical and instrumental instruction in accordance with the proven Suzuki method instructional philosophy: • learning to play an instrument in the same way they learn to speak their native language with a step-by-step process based on listening, watching and building their own “musical-instrumental vocabulary”

Every child can learn to play the guitar at a high level. Listening to recordings of guitar repertoire, parental involvement, group classes, daily practice and encouragement are key elements of the Suzuki method. Carefully chosen repertoire will enable your child to build excellent technique and musicianship from a solid foundation of musical awareness.

• supportive atmosphere, tailored to the learning pace of each child • musical and instrumental skills gained through step-by-step learning • learning instrumental skills before learning to read music and play simultaneously

• parental involvement You will attend all your child’s classes and be a practice coach at home. To prepare you for this role, you will participate in Suzuki training prior to your child’s first lessons.

Piano Piano students in the Suzuki Method learn music in a simple and direct way, similar to the way they learn to speak. Throughout the Suzuki growing process, your child thrives in an atmosphere of continual support and understanding. Every aspect of the Suzuki program is dedicated to the child — from repertoire, lesson length and seating at the instrument to the positive pedagogic approach. Parents participate actively, attending lessons and practicing with their child at home.

Trumpet Taught by the first accredited Suzuki trumpet instructor in North America, Natalie DeJong, this program will pilot the use of the first Suzuki trumpet book. The year-long program provides a balance between working on musical literacy and gaining instrumental skills so students develop the ability to read music and to play their instrument with beautiful tone and strong technique. All Suzuki Program instruction is provided as private lessons. To register, call MRU Conservatory, 403.440.6821.

Conservatory

• individual attention in private lessons and group learning in a positive social environment

To make studying classical guitar fun, musical games are played and learning happens one step at a time. In addition to weekly lessons, your child will learn from other students in bi-monthly group classes and frequent recitals. These learning opportunities will further your child’s playing skills and motivation.

Mount Royal Artio Choir The name Artio is derived from the Celtic word for “bear,” and was the name of a Gallo-Roman goddess who often took the form of a bear.

The Artio Choir specializes in choral music that is distinct, demanding, diverse and innovative.

Mount Royal Artio presents a final choral music performance each year that fuses music with innovative ideas and other art forms. This includes “choral theatre” performances that give audiences exciting new performance presentations that draw upon the talent and imagination of the members.

Korekara (“from now on”) was written by Michelle Fuiji and Walter Clarke and was composed with a spirit of deep appreciation for the taiko pioneers that have come before us and excitement about the future. The taiko boom we now enjoy, with dozens upon dozens of taiko groups across North America, owes its roots to the vision, energy and teaching of the taiko pioneers in our community. Korekara is intended to honor the generosity of these visionaries, building upon the foundation that they have laid for us and encouraging taiko to go in exciting new directions.
