More than 1,400 attend Community Report 2014 events

University community comes together to celebrate achievements
October 7, 2014

Monday marked the final in a series of three Community Report events for students, faculty and staff to celebrate our Eyes High progress. President Elizabeth Cannon launched Community Report 2014 at main campus on Sept. 25 and has since travelled to Foothills and downtown campuses to share our accomplishments and thank the university community for their ongoing hard work over the past year.

This is the first year that Community Report was taken on the road with President Cannon presenting at multiple locations and included a variety of presentations and videos to highlight some of our successes. The university also partnered with Calgary Economic Development for the third event at downtown campus.

Some of the highlighted projects included:

  • Presentation from Jo Towers, professor at the Werklund School of Education, who shared research on teaching and learning entitled Building a Better Math Teacher;
  • Presentation from Anne Flynn, professor of dance in the Faculty of Kinesiology and the Department of Dance, who shared some of her research on the influence of dance for Parkinson’s disease patients;
  • Presentation of the Giant Walkthrough Brain partnership with Beakerhead;
  • Presentation from Amelia Keller, student chair of the Student Run Clinic, who shared insights on the clinics and the unique teaching opportunity for medical students;
  • Presentation of World Innovation Day, an international innovation competition featuring the O’Brien Institute of Public Health’s Ward of the 21st Century (W21C).
