Housed in Learning Services, Camosun Showcase is an annual College publication featuring contributions from individuals across the college documenting their creative, professional, and scholarly activities. Inspired by the wide-ranging nature of these projects, Sybil Harrison, (retired) Director of Learning Services, and Elizabeth West, faculty in the English Language Development Department, and then-chair of the Camosun College Faculty Association Professional Development Committee, conspired to establish a platform in which these projects could be shared and celebrated.
The first issue of Camosun Showcase was produced in 2017. Subsequent issues not only expanded in volume but saw an increase in the nature and scope of contributions. Today, the publication includes contributions from faculty as well as College leadership, with the voices of Camosun students also featuring more prominently.
Until 2022, Camosun Showcase was informally launched at the annual Walls Optional Conference hosted by Learning Services. Starting in 2023, Showcase was launched at a dedicated event celebrating stories from past and present issues, a tradition that will continue.
We invite you to share your story and join us in creating a diverse and engaging collection that represents the talent and creativity within our college community!
