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.

Building Trusting Relationships through the Power of Coaching
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

How can we build trusting relationships in education that contribute to success for everyone? Is there one key action or approach that will help students be more successful? More and more research points to the coaching approach as a way to not only build positive, constructive relationships but also contributes significantly to building will, skill, knowledge and capacity. This workshop will explore both the contribution coaching can make to the growth of positive, empowering relationships in our centres and classrooms as well as the ins and outs of coaching.

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.
