Location: Canad Inns Polo Park 1405 St. Matthews Ave
Time: 8:45-3:30 (Registration starts at 8:00- coffee and pastries served)
Join us for a dynamic full day workshop with Dr. Leyton Schnellert- researcher, author, and Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia. Dr. Schnellert’s research interests address inclusive education, self- and co-regulation, the use of formative assessment to inform cycles of collaborative inquiry, how teacher professional development relates to student diversity and literacy.
In this workshop, Dr. Schnellert will discuss how deeper understanding can be created with the use of inquiry and project based learning. He will describe the importance of responsive teaching and self-regulation by connecting evidence-based principles to assessment, planning and instruction. Creating pathways in writing, technology, and new literacies will be explored so that we may transform principles into practice and create inclusive classrooms for middle and senior high students.
