Serving and promoting the welfare of all Wilfrid Laurier University retirees
Not your usual road trip: driving the roads of the Yukon and Northwest Territories, with David Peirson, retired Professor of Biology. Join us for David’s narration and slide show of his trip and adventures along the way. Get to know Yellowknife, Fort Providence, Fort Simpson, the Mackenzie River, Victoria Falls in Nahanni National Park, the Alaska Highway, Whitehorse, Dawson City, and Mount Logan – parts of Canada not visited by most of us.
This will be a hybrid gathering, in-person in the first-floor lounge of the 202 Regina St. building as well as on Zoom. In keeping with the university policy requiring masks in classrooms, masks will be required at our in-person gathering.
Academics Without Borders (AWB) is a Canadian non-profit organization. Its mission is to help low and middle-income countries improve their universities and colleges so that they can train their own experts and conduct research to promote their countries‚ development.
AWB has recently issued a call for volunteers for projects to promote online and blended learning in low- and middle-income countries. All volunteer work will be conducted online. Further information is on the attachment. Application deadline: December 8, 2022. More details here.
Volunteers will work on the development and delivery of online and blended projects in collaboration with other volunteers who have expertise in the content area of the project and with faculty and staff at our partner institutions.
