Online Live Learning Events for Educators
We are pleased to offer the following webinars in partnership with our members and partners.
Nature-Based Biology Activities from a Distance
Wednesday, September 16
4:30-6:00pm Pacific/ 5:30-7:00pm Mountain
Facilitated by Cathy Law / Hosted by Green Teacher
Getting kids outside to learn science couldn’t come at a better time now that we all need to be cautious about working in groups. Outdoor learning activities based on inquiry and discovery make your students’ learning experience both meaningful and memorable, but most importantly, FUN! Join in on the adventure and preview labs for yourself and see how you can bring excitement into your classroom by not using one! These activity ideas work really well for students under quarantine, too. Separately but together, students will enjoy learning in the finest class setting of them all — Mother Nature.
Virtual Classrooms to Communities Provincial Conference
Friday, October 23
Facilitated by the Classrooms to Communities Network (including CBEEN, KBEE & EEPSA)
Place-Based Learning is a core foundation of our curriculum in B.C.. Educators and students across the province are excited to be inquiring about issues and priorities that matter most to our communities with a ‘local lens’. By helping educators connect classroom and community through a focus on people, place and planet, this online professional development event will inspire promising practices and transformative learning in our schools and communities.
Because of COVID-19, this is a unique conference, in that we will be delivering all of our workshops digitally. Despite not being able to gather face-to-face in community spaces, the focus of the conference is still how to connect students to their communities.
