Professional Learning

There are growing requests from teachers for support on how to effectively engage students who are reluctant to learn at school. There is also a need to update teachers’ professional knowledge to improve instructional strategies using multimodal tools that impact on student engagement.  We are pleased to provide an empowering workshop that gives teachers the understandings, tools and strategies to transform their classrooms into engaging learning spaces for all students.
