CITE Symposium: Critical Thinking in a Post-Truth World

Critical thinking is one of the most important higher order skills acquired in a college education, but it is also one of the most difficult to define, teach, assess, and link to demonstrable behaviours. This celebration of teaching and learning welcomes presentations that discuss how MHC faculty are designing learning experiences to foster a skill students require more than ever.

Pathways Gala

Pathways Gala 2018 - cancelled

Due to multiple events occurring in Medicine Hat on the same evening, this year’s Pathways Gala has been cancelled. The event was originally scheduled for June 8, 2018, but other events hosted by partners in the community have since been announced for the same evening, creating conflicts for many of our key stakeholders. As a community gesture, the decision was made to cancel this year’s event to accommodate our partners.

While this year’s event will not occur, donations to the Pathways Student Life Enhancement Fund (to support students facing financial challenges) are welcome year-round. To learn more about the Pathways Fund, click here.

An alternate event will be scheduled later in the year to celebrate education and partnerships.
