Course Type: In-person Workshop

Where: Ottawa Public Library - Greenboro Branch

Communications efficacy is critical for leaders, trusted advisors, and talent across the spectrum. More than words and exchanges of information, each conversation has the potential to trigger a reaction, emotionally and in our neurochemistry, that can either shut down or open up our levels of trust, our ability to listen and hear, and our ability to connect. Conversational Intelligence® (C‐IQ®) Teaches Us All to Do Better. This full day workshop draws from the burgeoning field of Conversational Intelligence. We will go deeper into key concepts introduced in earlier SOLS webinars and work collaboratively to expand our understanding and efficacy with new insights and strategies to promote healthier conversational dynamics in a public library setting. .

Cost: $113.00 ($100.00 + HST)

Where: STEAM Centre

Join us for 2 interactive, fast paced, sessions covering both digital and physical creativity at the STEAM Centre in St. Thomas, Ontario. In one session, working in pairs and small groups you will get an opportunity to create your own 3D digital design from scratch. How do you actually create the design rather than just find it online? What is a simple way to start designing? What might go wrong and how can you fix it? In the other session, you will get a crash course in all things Micro:Bit! The Micro:Bit is an incredible physical coding platform developed for kids by the BBC. It comes with lots of great online curriculum and opportunity for low floor, high ceiling physical coding activities.
