PD Day for A&CE Credit Teachers

April 2, 2019
Toronto, ON

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Toronto Downtown
108 Chestnut Street
Toronto, ON M5G 1R3

This professional development day is an exciting opportunity to come together as adult and continuing education (A&CE) credit teachers from across Ontario to share experiences and learn about key themes in A&CE today. We will explore a variety of topics such as mathematics & numeracy; diversity & equity; and supporting mental health wellness & decreasing stigma. Through interactive workshops and discussion based sessions, you’ll leave with new skills and practical ideas to apply to your own A&CE program.

CESBA invites up to three A&CE credit teachers from each school board to attend.
