[Good afternoon,

I’d like to first introduce myself. I’m the marketing and communications specialist at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology(SAIT) for the School of Health and Public Safety.]

[The reason I’m reaching out to you today is we have a number of programs offered at SAIT that have interprovincial agreements in place offering reserved seats for residents of Saskatchewan.]

[We are looking for additional ways to ensure that individuals in Saskatchewan are aware of these opportunities and disseminate information within the province [for] individuals who are looking at the career options available to them. In particular our Nuclear Medicine Technology program.

We have a number of materials that can be provided in soft copy versions, which I’ve included here, and would be happy to share hardcopy versions should you want this format.

Thank you,

Adam Thurston

Global Learning in AG Conference (Online)

We would love to help “spread the word” about this professional development opportunity with the goal of “tearing down” barriers to teachers advancing global learning in agriculture:  #GLAG18: Cultivating Global Learners.  Our keynote should be great, “Transforming Global Agriculture Through Youth Engagement” with Appiah Boateng, founder and Executive Director of 4-H Ghana, and Trent McKnight, founder of AgriCorps. You might enjoy this short clip from Trent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAuD-9CEzdQ

This is our third year of the conference in an online format. You can search #GLAG17 or #GLAG16 on Twitter to get a feel for past “feeds”.

I want to  make sure you are aware of two things:

1)      We want to learn from you! Submit presentation proposals.

  1.       We are soliciting sharing of scholarship and best practices for advancing the dialogue around Global Learning and participants have two options for dissemination of their innovation and research: synchronous or asynchronous. Submissions are really simple and are due on November 15th. Truly, this is for ANYONE passionate about global engagement in agriculture. All levels of educators are welcome (secondary and post-secondary). This is a non-discipline specific, unbiased sharing of scholarship of research and creative accomplishment and scholarship of teaching and learning.  You can learn more here: http://aese.psu.edu/teachag/global/global-learning-in-agriculture-conference/request-for-applications

2)      Sharing is Caring.

  1.       I know when you find something it awesome, the only thing that makes it better is sharing with someone else! There is a limited availability for the awesome Conference-in-a-Box! Please personally invite friends and colleagues that you think would be interested J: http://www.cvent.com/events/global-learning-in-agriculture-conference-glag18-/event-summary-daa92625b5034d9c816e30f57cd6a9f0.aspx .
