We are currently running a pilot project in Manitoba to test the impact of local, on-the-ground services. Manitoba was chosen because it has a large Indigenous community, a French minority-language community and a population size that is manageable for a pilot. As part of this project, we have engaged an education specialist from the region to deliver in-person and virtual professional learning activities to educators across the province.
Who can participate?
- Secondary teachers
- Instructors, teacher-candidates, and student associations at Faculties of Education
- School departments and teachers’ associations
- Educators and consultants at school boards, divisions, departments, or ministries of Education
What type of activities are offered?
We tailor each PD activity to your needs and can present in a variety of environments and approaches, including:
- Professional learning events
- Staff or department meetings
- Co-teaching or classroom demonstrations
- Faculties of education
- Student events
Our PD services feature Elections Canada’s learning resources. We can also touch on the following key topics: blended learning strategies, critical thinking, inquiry-based learning, global competencies, civic engagement, literacy skills and language learner needs, and misinformation and disinformation.
Book your next PD with us! Fill out the online form today.
