Professional development for educators, teachers, and professional learners.
Need a bolt of inspiration to supercharge your classroom experience in 2022? Want to help build a more inclusive and curious learning community?
Join TELUS Spark Science Centre for a series of engaging online professional development sessions that unlock science communications, science-based tools and new methods for teaching science (and other subjects) in the classroom. Spark Learning Lab is a learning-focused online program designed for not just teachers, but informal educators and professional-learners alike!
Cost: $5 per session. However, sessions are FREE for anyone who identifies as an Indigenous educator, or is an educator that teaches Indigenous students -- contact [email protected] for more details.
“An amazing, MUST-DO, personal and teaching practice altering experience that allows you to feel and be creatively confident”Former Participant
“A great environment to be uncomfortable, develop new skills, experience being a learner, and improve your teaching practice.”Former Participant
“Design Thinking is a way of thinking and doing that empowers our students with what they need to be innovators, creators, collaborators, critical thinkers and risk-takers in our society. Nobody knows how design thinking can be transformative in education better than the dedicated team of educators at Telus Spark.”Former Participant
“It's a chance to learn to think fluidly, brainstorm rapidly, and generate ideas that you can really make. You're pushed to think, act, and collaborate quickly and when mistakes arise, which they do, you build on them and learn.”Former Participant
Due to the intellectual integrity of the guest speakers, not all sessions will be recorded – so be sure to catch them live!
Each session runs from 4-5:30 p.m. (MT) – a one hour talk, followed by a moderated 30 minute Q&A session.
Any educator from across the globe! And remember, educators are not limited to teachers. Anyone in informal education or working with youth will benefit from this professional development opportunity.
All three winter 2022 Spark Learning Lab sessions are $5 for members and non-members.
All Spark Learning Lab sessions will be hosted on Zoom.
YES!!! More information on spring and fall sessions will be coming soon. Check back on this page in January and February 2022!
