Upcoming Workshops

The Summer Institute for Elementary Teachers is an interactive professional learning workshop for primary and junior-level teachers (kindergarten to grade 6). The program shares innovative teaching strategies for integrating science, technology, engineering, and math into classroom lessons. Teachers discover new ways to have students apply their knowledge and are equipped with information and resources.

This year we’re focussed on offering FREE online workshops open to teachers across Canada.

The first workshops are listed below with more to follow in the Fall.  Most workshops are one hour long.
