Creating Safe and Inclusive Environments for Trans and Non-Binary Youth
Limited Capacity seats available

Trans and non-binary youth are increasingly revealing and expressing their gender identity and often doing so even before puberty. A growing number of these youth will transition while attending school. Québec’s laws were amended in June 2016 to protect and respect the rights of all trans and non-binary people including youth. In this workshop, the realities of trans and non-binary students will be explored, and concrete measures suggested to better support them. The workshop will cover the following subjects:
  • Sexual and gender diversity: what are we talking about? Key concepts (homophobia, transphobia, heteronormativity, gender identity, transition, etc.)
  • Integration of trans and non-binary identities
  • The experience of trans and non-binary youth in Québec Schools
  • Québec laws regarding gender identity and expression
  • Obstacles and challenges on the terrain: strategies to support LGBT youth.
  • Working proactively: how to limit harassment and bullying related to sexual and gender diversity and how to intervene when it does occur?

Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time!
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Working longer hours at a faster pace does not actually lead to greater productivity. In fact, these assumptions are flawed and detrimental to our physical health and mental well-being. If you want to bring your whole self to your job, and dedicate your time and energy to worthwhile and meaningful work, then you have to learn how to leverage your energy in four main areas of life: Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual. This workshop draws upon the science of optimal performance and will teach you how to stack the cards in your favour so that you are positioned for success.

Seminar Objectives:
  • What are Ultra-radian rhythms, and how can do I work in alignment with their tempo?
  • Explore the science of sleep and the power of focus
  • Discover techniques for managing emotions
  • Learn how purpose fuels all 3 other energy areas and why without it, you are likely to feel exhausted and depleted

Understanding Our International Students – What Is Their Reality?
Limited Capacity filling up

So many of us teach international cohorts – indeed, many of our groups are often made up entirely of non-Canadian students. Our perception as to why these students are here can sometimes colour how we approach them and how we teach. However, how many among us have ever considered the personal implications beyond the immigration factors for these young people? As a vocational teacher who came to Canada as an immigrant, I will highlight what underlying familial pressures, cultural biases and generational differences are affecting your international students. Building cross-cultural classrooms and centres can be both rewarding and demanding. In this workshop, we will explore how to capitalize on the power of diversity and how to find creative ways to help integrate your international students and how to make the relationship as mutually beneficial as possible.

Using Empathy to Design Our Centres and Classrooms - Win-Win for Us and Our Students!
Limited Capacity filling up

Our centre environments have a huge impact on our students and our own sense of efficacy as education professionals. Little things like how we provide access to resources to how we transition between activities to how we touch base with our colleagues and students can make a big difference for our students and for centre staff. This workshop will focus on the little shifts you can make in your classrooms and centres as you design activities - whether inside or outside of the classroom - with empathy in mind.
Technology is an essential tool when designing with empathy so you will need a laptop or tablet (or a buddy with one!) in order to experience what this looks like first hand in this workshop.

Can We Teach and Assess Empathy?
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Empathy has the capacity to transform individual lives for the better while helping to bring about positive social change in schools. According to the latest neuroscience research, 98% of people have the ability to empathize wired into their brains, so the good news is that almost everyone can learn to be more empathic.
In this workshop we will overview techniques, tools and strategies for fostering and assessing empathy in the classroom. Participants will come away with a better understanding of how success in the classroom depends less on learning materials, and more on what goes on inside and between the people in that learning environment.

Health, Wealth and Literacy
Limited Capacity seats available

The Social Progress Index, which measures people’s quality of life across the four continents, lists adult literacy rate as a key factor to the foundation of wellbeing. The International Literacy Association states that “The ability to read, write, and communicate connects people and empowers them to achieve things they never thought possible”.  With the literacy requirements of the Diversified Basic Education increasing dramatically, it is imperative that educational stakeholders collaborate for adult learners’ academic success and overall feeling of empowerment. This workshop will review, compare and contrast the content versus disciplinary literacy requirements for the core DBE programs and offer tools to help adult centres devise their literacy action plans and ensuing professional development sessions.

RAC in the Real World! What It Looks Like!
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The RAC process is often confused and misunderstood. This interactive workshop is designed to help explain this process and to emphasize how it can best meet the needs of each individual RAC candidate. 
To do this we will examine: 
  • The philosophy behind the development of RAC
  • Meeting the needs (financial, professional, time constraints, etc.) of the individual
  • How the service is adapted to each department’s realities and each candidate’s educational path.
  • How RAC is directly related to industry demands, thereby impacting a person’s potential to advance in their career objectives
  • RAC: a process that responds to the person!
The workshop will demonstrate how RAC recognizes, validates, and certifies individuals in our society, who would otherwise “fall through the cracks” due to their own particular situation.
Can an administrative process designed to Recognize Acquired Competencies be an empathetic process? Join us to find out!

Using Twitter to Build Community
Limited Capacity seats available

Does the blue bird on the logo freak you out more than those in the Hitchcock movie? Maybe you have no idea what to write once on Twitter or you just don’t understand the point of using 280 characters to communicate to a faceless audience?  It’s true – at first glimpse Twitter can seem like a catchall for anything and everything under the sky. However, in this age of #fakenews, it is also a very important agent for social change, for information sharing and for community building. In this workshop we will explore how a Twitter network can be beneficial to you in your workday, how it can be used for morale building and how to collaborate with like-minded people (or even with those whose views are totally different). We will compare what it means to be an active Twitter community member versus a passive one.
Don’t have a Twitter account, but are curious to learn more? No problem! We will quickly go through the basics of setting yourself up on Twitter and how to have your account accurately reflect who you are. Already a Twitter aficionado?

Beginning With Career Exploration: An Important Tool to Starting and Staying In School
Limited Capacity filling up

Students returning to school or at risk of leaving school often times find themselves questioning their purpose. They often do not connect or link learning opportunities and their relevance for future career choices. Students often experience pressure from family, peers and teachers to find their right path. This can inevitably lead to stress, anxiety, poor attendance, or abandoning school all together. This workshop, through various activities, will take you through a simulation of career exploration.
No matter what your educational path may be, in the end, everyone needs a plan.

How to Transform Students in Five Steps from Passive Bystanders into Agents of Change, Ready to Fight Cyberbullying
Limited Capacity seats available

Never in the history of humanity has cyberbullying been so inventive and thus destructive. Cyberbullies exploit this digital age to spread hate. They intentionally and repeatedly use the internet to cause harm, fear or distress to people. Their behaviours includes harassing individuals they consider weak and defenseless, denigrating them and harming their reputation, typical of hate speech spreaders.
Cyberbullying is not limited to one context. When it happens, it derails human potential and we all bear the consequences. Yet, only one third of Canadians who witness cyberbullying stand up to it. Although cyberbullying feels unstoppable, there are techniques for dealing with it.
In this workshop, we will explore how administers and professionals in adult education, can use some of these techniques, namely the “Get Ready to Act Against Social Media Propaganda” model, to help passive bystanders address what holds them back and become equipped and empowered to actively counter cyberbullying. The five-step model is accompanied by tools stemming from Personal Construct Psychology and works on the idea that learning about oneself and understanding one’s own behaviours in cyberbullying contexts is key to transforming passive bystanders into agents of change.
