How to Register

How to Register

* NEW workshops will be offered online while the university works remotely during the pandemic.

* We ask that students and post-doctoral fellows sign up for each workshop they wish to attend. A link and password for the online workshop will be sent to students one day prior to the workshop.

For workshops where there is a separate registration, such as Mitacs, QUIC, 4DISC, SASS, you will need to register directly with them (see details below).  Your participation in the workshop however is reliant on confirmation from them only.  We will be provided an attendance roster for all those confirmed and attended for our records.

If at any stage you have difficulty registering, please contact Colette Steer at steerc@queensu.ca.

Registering for Edge by Mitacs workshops

Registration for Edge by Mitacs workshops:

  1. You must register via the Mitacs website and wait for confirmation of participation from them. Mitacs are the only ones to advise whether you can attend the workshop or not.

  2. You will not be able to sign up via our Expanding Horizons registration system. The School of Graduate Studies (SGS) will be provided a list from Mitacs of who has registered. The SGS will then add you to the Expanding Horizons system to allow us to mark attendance so we can credit you for the course.

  3. Likewise if you do one of the Mitacs Online workshops, send details of that, so we can credit you accordingly.

QUIC and  Four Directions Intercultural Awareness Certificate

QUIC and the Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre invite students to participate in this five-part series of workshops which will help them to recognize that gaining intercultural awareness requires a commitment to life-long learning. If you complete the certificate it can contribute to the Expanding Horizons workshops requirement. Participants must  complete the whole certificate to get credit. Workshops are repeated in the Fall and Winter Terms. Space is limited; reserve your place by emailing quic.training@queensu.ca. For more information, refer to Training for Students on the QUIC website.

All workshops hosted by SASS will require you to register with them directly.  For a full listing of all their workshops, including those under our Professional Development Workshop Series, look at their Event calendar
