If you believe that collaboration can transform both schools and work…
If you want to build a network with others who are working to implement/pilot the new curriculum ….
If you want to nudge your thinking in new ways by exploring new perspectives…
If you want to actively contribute to a plan for how the curriculum can look in a classroom next year…
Then this is the institute for you!
Rather than a traditional “sit and get” experience, the summer institute is designed as a week-long program to help you map out next year, learn more about how the curriculum has been designed, examine learning outcomes and design assessment to support student learning.
We will be using the lens of Universal Design for Learning and Understanding by Design to help guide our planning. We will be looking at ways to embed Indigenous perspectives into our work.
You can look forward to rolling up your sleeves with your peers to create a plan forward.
