Program Overview for CIE 40th Celebratory Conference

Detailed Schedule with times, names and locations.

Conference Brochure - click here

The goal of this Celebratory Conference is to bring together CIE members from across the decades to share past and present experiences, fun, and ideas for the future of the Center.  We hope that, by the end of the three days, participants will have:

  • Learned about the work and project experiences of their CIE colleagues, discussed future trends in our field, and contributed suggestions for future academic, project and research endeavors for CIE;
  • Laughed and gotten re-connected with colleagues and old friends, met new ones, and had a fun and relaxing time rejuvenating personal and working relationships among those in the CIE network.

Rationale for Schedule

  • Conference sessions on Friday: a chance for CIE members to share the work they have been doing; gives a a mix of speakers from different eras of CIE an opportunity to conduct sessions related to their passions and work. Some are Panels with presentations and others are interactive dialogues with resource people.
  • Plenary panel on Saturday morning: a chance for everyone to be together in a session that talks about one approach with comments from three CIE members on applications in different settings. General discussion of implications and possibilities.
  • Conference strands on key issues Saturday afternoon:  a chance for participants to attend two sessions within a theme or “strand”, and then meet with other strand participants to discuss what this might mean for their own and CIE work in the future.
  • Plenary on Sunday morning:  a chance to discuss future work in the field, and its implications for CIE over the next 25 years.
