Learn, Practice, Thrive: AESES Education Seminars
Your AESES Education Committee has planned five new seminars for the fall season, which we hope will appeal to your brain cells:
Sunday, October 1 – Trolley City Tour
Hop aboard a historic looking trolley, as it drives past many of Winnipeg’s sites, from St. Boniface to Assiniboine Park. A running commentary will allow you to appreciate the city you live in once again, taking in the very best sights and learning the stories behind many of the buildings and neighbourhoods you drive by on a weekly basis. According to www.winnipegtrolleycompany.ca, the tour is “humorous, engaging, and…will help you discover what makes the city at the heart of the country so special!” Limited seating, capped at 32. The tour will depart from in front of The Forks Market (1 Forks Market Road) at The Forks.
Tuesday, October 3 / Thursday, October 5 / Thursday, October 12 – Sick Leave & Attendance Management: Understanding Your Rights
AESES’ very own Labour Relations Officer, Lorne, and our Executive Director, Lisa, will be speaking on this important topic, clarifying the policies and answering related questions. It’s a great opportunity to learn about your rights and how the Universities are currently applying their Sick Leave policies. Informed members make for a stronger union. We have set aside one day at each campus for us to meet.
Wednesday, October 25 – Jewelry Making
The folks at PoCo Inspired will help a group of us craft and string our own bracelets. A valuable skill if you’re intrigued by all things shiny and bead-y and gem-y. Plus you walk away with a piece you can either re-gift or proudly wear yourself.
Just in time for the holiday season, this workshop will focus on how to keep a keen edge on your kitchen knives. John Sharples (really!) will lead you through the steps required to sharpen and maintain these tools with a hands-on approach, so feel free to bring along a couple of dull items from your kitchen to work on. All other tools and materials will be supplied.
