The Faculty of Education offers support for the continued professional learning of educators at all levels working in a variety of environments in the form of an inquiry-based series of 3-5 sessions.
The focus for each series is developed collaboratively in response to specific needs identified within a district, school or educational institution. These needs may arise from policy and curricular changes or the desire to improve educational services in specific areas.
These series are made available to school districts, independent schools and other educational institutions on a variety of topics, including:
The new BC curriculum (and related topics)
Project-based learning and Inquiry
Approche actionnelle/Action-oriented approach
Supporting oral language in the classroom
Language acquisition in the content areas
Numeracy and number sense
Additional topics as requested
These series are usually hosted by the district/organization making the request. They may be accommodated on-campus if requested.
Each series will consist of:
3-5 non-credit sessions around a chosen theme
sessions may be held during the day, evening or on the weekend
