  1. Capilano Universe Series: Dr. Nancy Nowlan Enhancing Education with the “Digital Blur”: Engaging Students with Games like Pokemon Go. Games like Pokemon Go use regular technology such as cell phones for playing games outside in the real world. A blend of on-line and reality (the “digital blur”) is engaging when we play for fun and when students play “serious games”, such as educational simulations, which can include all forms of modern communication. This presentation will focus on a role play simulation at McGill University, and how its design is used in a Capilano University course. Tuesday, March 14 North Vancouver District Public Library: Capilano Branch

  1. Thoroughly Modern Millie! – An Exit 22 Company Production. Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the delightful story of a small-town girl who travels to New York City in 1922.  Amid the flapper lifestyle, the social whirl and with the new idea of women entering the workforce, Millie invents a new life for herself.  She decides on the ‘thoroughly modern” aim of marrying for money and not for love. She sets her sights on the new boss and moves into a rooming house, which is unfortunately run by the female leader of a white slavery ring in China. Hilarity ensues as she moves through high society, gets arrested, saves her friends from the slavery ring and finally falls for the boy who is ‘lower than an alley cat” – who turns out to be rich!! With catchy tunes, energetic dance numbers and thoroughly loveable characters, Millie will be an enchanting night out for the whole family. Wednesday, March 15 to Saturday, March 25 The BlueShore at Cap
  1. Free Cap Classics Concert Student Showcase, featuring top prize winners of the Music Diploma Program performance competitions. Friday, March 17 The BlueShore at Cap.
