About this Event

Welcome to Canada: Theory Meets Practice (previously named Designing Canada). Last year, our conference brought together 88 students from all levels and faculties, and nine speakers on issues of national importance. The conference gave students a jargon-free overview of issues they might not have been aware of, a window into how people solve complex problems, exposure to different career options, and a chance to meet people just like-minded enough to be relatable and different enough to broaden one another’s perspectives.

Just like last year’s event was more than just a conference, this year’s is more than just a series of online talks. Participants will be able to interact with one another (and with willing speakers) on dedicated Slack channels before, during and after the conference. We’ll also use Slack to prompt reflection, for those who want to integrate what they learn into their lives. Brief, asynchronous talks by speakers will be followed by live Q&A panels. We’ll start and end the conference with students, kicking off with mini sessions led by Mac students and recent alum, and wrapping up with an ideation session to help you turn an idea that inspired you into a plan for action. Events will occur every 2-3 days from January 15 to Feb 1, 2021 (dates tentative).
