Innovation Boot Camp Registration is Open!

The ALPS Exec is pleased to announce that as a result of collaborative efforts between ALPS, the University of B.C. (UBC) Library’s Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, UBC’s Human Resources Department and the UBC Faculty Association’s Librarians and Archivists Committee we are able to offer an exciting professional development opportunity.  Innovation Boot Camp will be coming to town! Innovation Boot Camp is “a social experiment designed by Robin Bergart and M.J. D’Elia to explore the question: can we learn to be more innovative?”

On Wednesday, April 10, 2013, M.J. D’Elia will be at UBC to lead a workshop for up to 50 librarians. Coffee and snacks will be served from 8:30am-9:00am so please come early and get to know your fellow boot camp recruits! Lunch will also be provided.

We will also be hosting a Pub Night following the workshop at Mahony & Sons on UBC Campus. If you’d like to attend, please RSVP by selecting “ALPS Pub Night @ UBC” when you register. Registration and payment details are included below:
