LCC 2022 Theme:

Reconnect, Recharge, & Reflect

Reconnect, Recharge, & Reflect

Planning the annual Learning Connections Conference (LCC) is much like creatively deciding what to cook for dinner. The core planning committee began the process in September (2021) by reflecting on feedback received from the previous year’s LCC participants, adding some consideration of the strategic priorities influencing our College at this time, meeting with the College Executive Team for their suggestions and, most importantly, mixing in the current needs and hopes of SLC staff. We blend these ingredients together and come up with a Theme for the next year’s conference. After considerable discussion we settled on:

Reconnect

Anticipating that after two years of most staff working off campus remotely, there will be a strong desire to reconnect with long-time colleagues and meet new staff who have joined the College over the past two years. Plus…

Reflect

Obviously, the past two years have meant substantial change and impacted how we do our work, how we meet the needs of our students, and how this experience has affected us, so we knew there is a need to build in time to reflect. Plus…

Recharge

The impact of COVID-19 has impacted on all aspects of our lives, both personally and professionally, which for many of us has been physically, emotionally and intellectually draining, so we need to think about how we can recharge our energy, spirits and motivation.

We mix all these ideas together and our theme menu for 2022 LCC is: Reconnect, Reflect & Recharge!

What does this theme mean to the Program Dev Committee?

This theme was well received when the core planning committee met with the various College committees to seek input on our planning approach for LCC; however, we knew the theme was right on the mark when we asked staff who expressed an interest to participate on the LCC Program Development Committee to share what the 2022 LCC Theme mean to them. Here is a just a sample of what members had to say:
