Summer Bootcamp FrancoFUN

REGISTRATION: FEBRUARY 4 TO MAY 10, 2019

THE SUMMER BOOTCAMP FRANCOFUN IS BACK!

Discover the Francophonie in all its forms, beyond the classroom on sunny Burnaby Mountain!

Experience a full week combining pedagogy, French language, art and outdoor activities to help you explore and reflect on your own French teaching practices. This is a great opportunity for you to reflect on:

  • the implementation of authentic learning experiences in French language acquisition for your students
  • concepts of differentiation, identity, environmental education
  • integration of Aboriginal perspectives in teaching French as a second language

Your professional development doesn’t stop at the end of the five-day workshop!  It will be followed up with two meetings in the Fall which will consolidate your learning experience and enable you all to share your innovative practices.

Become a part of a professional community of collaborative learning.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!
