Tuesday, October 4th we are hosting a bonfire at the KCIC gardens! We will be providing ingredients for s’mores and there are some big benches for sitting on. You are welcome to bring friends, family, whomever to join us! Last year we spent some time star gazing and we had a couple guitars. It was very cozy! So don’t be afraid to bring your guitar or other instrument with you. Feel free to bring along any other bonfire supples like blankets, more chairs, glow sticks, or other snacks (to share or not!). We look forward to seeing you there.
A few of us are up extra early today to head into the city for Dalhousie’s TA professional day! We’ll be sitting in on workshops and discussions on topics like “Larger Class Size” and “Encouraging Independent Thought and Innovation”. If you’re interested in learning more about it here’s a link to the website. Dalhousie hosts a number of events yearly for graduate students and welcomes Acadia students to partake. The Dalhousie Conference on University Teaching and Learning is another one to look out for this year!
