TESL SASK Professional Development Opportunity
Organized by Simone Hengen
Introduction: #TreatyEdCamp 3.0
At the last TESL SASK AGM, our association voted to include learning about Indigenous peoples of Canada and their stories in Canadian history Professional Development. An excellent opportunity to learn more about Indigenous peoples and Treaties takes place annually in #TreatyEd Camp, organized by the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina.
This year, Treaty Ed Camp will be on Saturday, October 21st
This free event is held for educators or the general public to learn more about the legacy of residential schools, Treaty Education, the historical and contemporary implications of Treaty and the possibilities for decolonization and reconciliation.
Although TreatyCamp is an all-day event, TESL SK members do not have to attend the full event in order to receive credit for Professional Development hours. It is possible to attend only the morning sessions and receive 3 hours of PD credit.
Since it is an annual event, if you are unable to make this year’s Treaty Camp, think about attending next year.
