8 MHC NSERC Partnership Workshop In September 2013 MHC hosted a workshop involving a number of PSIs in Canada who are currently operate solar research and education programs MHC’s first NSERC Award Camosun, NAIT, Red River College, St. Lawrence, Nova Scotia Community College other participants Collaboration with Lakeland re: Solar PV data

9 3D Print and Laser Scanning Lab Purpose Funders/Partners Website Link Industry Engagement Integration into Curriculum MHC Community Outreach

10 Purpose Acquire advanced manufacturing equipment to bring 3D printing and scanning capabilities to the southeast Alberta region The primary audience for these capabilities small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) community Emphasis facilitating growth of Southeast Alberta’s Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS) cluster

11 Funders/Partners

12 Website Link DPrinter.aspx

13 Industry Engagement Local, provincial, and out-of-province companies have engaged with the lab Print and scanning jobs for health sciences, UVS, machining, agriculture, engineering, entertainment sectors Completed over 20 print jobs for external clients

14 Curriculum Integration MHC Community Outreach Students have printed 3d models as part of CADD program Trades print jobs –automotive, plumbing CADD and Vis Comm Students involved in applied research with the printer and scanner Prototypes for Athletic Department -Rattlers

17 Boyer’s Model of Scholarship Boyer (1997) Scholarship reconsidered: Priorities of the professoriate. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass 4 types of scholarship 1.Discovery 2.Integration 3.Application 4.Teaching

18 Integration – Interpret use of knowledge across disciplines Collaborating with colleagues to design and deliver a core course Coxal bone in Sketchfab in Anatomy

19 Application – Aid society and professions in addressing problems Serving industry as an external consultant – Student Capstone/applied research projects

20 Teaching* – Study teaching models and practices to achieve optimal learning Developing and testing instructional materials Coxal bone in Sketchfab What are best practices that you are incorporating in your teaching/curriculum delivery?

21 Innovation and Applied Research Innovation

22 Applied Research

23 External Applied Research Internal Innovation

24 External Applied Research May involve… An idea Proposal writing and application Lit review External funding agencies Industry engagement Student mentoring

25 Internal Innovation May involve… A process, technique, technology used in design and delivery of curriculum Students and MHC community are beneficiaries

26 Internal PD Sessions on Research, Teaching and Learning Outline funding opportunities Highlight best practices currently occurring at MHC and at other institutions

27 OIS Speakers Series Thursday, March 27 Carole Doucet-Love (SAIT) – Proposal Writing: A Primer Wednesday, April 30 Liz Richard (GPRC) – How to Promote and Sustain Scholarship and Collaborations
