WebExperience: Democracy & Elections Series / Série de Webinaires Élections et Démocratie
OECTA Provincial’s Professional Development Department, in partnership with Elections Canada, presents Série de Webinaires Élections et Démocratie, a French language webinar series for teachers. Beginning in July 2020, seven (7) different WebExperiences will be available, specially designed for Intermediate and Senior level French language teachers across a broad spectrum of subject areas.
These online, inquiry based, interactive sessions will take teachers on a tour of the free resources available through Elections Canada. Sessions will introduce teachers to one-hour, three-part lessons that foster student voice and engage students in Canadian democracy. Critical thinking, collaboration, and communication are at the heart of Elections Canada’s curriculum-linked activities. These bite-sized WebExperiences are a quick and easy way to boost teacher confidence in the realm of facilitating students’ learning about Canadian elections and democracy.
Each live session will take place between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Registration is required and space is limited.
All sessions will be recorded and posted to the provincial website for future on-demand viewing. For a complete list of offerings, visit: http://www.catholicteachers.ca/For-Your-Classroom/WebEXPERIENCE.
