The next generation of learning is upon us. As smartphones and portable devices replace textbooks and paper, educators are constantly evolving their teaching techniques and learning strategies.
The Summer Speaker Series is an annual event that invites teachers, students, parents and the general public to participate in discussions relating to education. In this summer’s series, educators from across the Okanagan will come together to discuss hot topics in education and share insights.
Speakers will address broad subject areas including inclusive education, wellness, kindness research, Global Education, Aboriginal Enhancement Agreements, and the new BC curriculum. Each Wednesday session kicks off with an interactive lecture followed by a question and answer period from noon to 1 p.m.
These events are free and open to the public. For a full schedule of presentations and more information visit: education.ok.ubc.ca/programs/sie/Speaker_Series
