March 8 - 10, 2019
The primary objective guiding the direction of the Teacher Skills Forum was founded on the regional need to align educational priorities, expectations and adequately support classroom teachers with the means to address them. As such, the guiding principles directing the goals of the Teacher Skills Forum are to provide teachers with opportunities and access to: learn new teacher strategies and techniques; to discuss possible action points and goals for enhancing classroom and school communities; to share and apply best teaching practices; to network and create lasting relationships based on a shared vision; to provide teachers with the skills to develop modern, innovative lessons that incorporate technologies into classroom instructions and finally, to support teachers to bridge the gap between academic theory and classroom practice.
The thematic strands of the 2019 Forum will incorporate the cross-cutting theme of "Agile Minds, Turning Tides.". Entrenched within each of the strands will be innovative approaches to teaching and the use of technology to enhance learning outcomes.
