About the Session

High School Teachers and Educational Assistants - if you’re looking for practical strategies to tackle tricky teaching conundrums and a network of colleagues to lean in on, this conference is for you!

The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a tremendous impact on the emotional and academic needs of high school students. Faced with new challenges as you rise to the occasion of mitigating these impacts, this virtual conference will provide High School Teachers and Educational Assistants an opportunity to learn with and from one another as you prepare to enter Semester 2.

Keynote speakers will provoke thought and provide conversation opportunities as you reflect on what you’ve learned over Semester 1 about what students need now, while concurrent sessions will provide practical and relevant strategies and approaches to support you in setting the stage for Semester 2 given the current realities of student needs. Discipline specific networking sessions for teachers will allow you a chance to talk about learning from the concurrent sessions in the context of your discipline and to apply it to your practice. There will be networking sessions specifically for Educational Assistants as well.

WHAT THIS CONFERENCE OFFERS:

Practical Strategies You Can Use Semester Two

  • Gain easy to use tools and approaches to support student social, emotional and academic success 
  • Solve your ‘trickies’ - what challenges are you facing today that you would like to talk to other high school teachers about?

A Network of Role-Alike Colleagues 

  • Collaborate and share ideas with role-alike colleagues in the Networking Sessions
  • Talk about the strategies and ideas from concurrent sessions in the context of your specific roles
  • Consider how best to apply new strategies to the subjects or areas you work in with colleagues.

CONTINUE THE LEARNING AFTER THE CONFERENCE:

Participants in this conference will receive special discounts and opportunities to continue the learning throughout Semester Two, including:
