Our 2019 Fall Conference will be held on October 24 & 25, 2019 at Canad Inns Polo Park at 1405 St. Matthews Avenue in Winnipeg. We are pleased to announce the theme of the conference: “Beyond the 94. What Now?”
Education and Reconciliation go hand and hand, so this conference is intended to bring truth and action to your teaching. The conference date is quickly approaching, and we are excited to begin preparations!
The Fall Conference Workshops are being organized in three themes:
- Remembering Together: This theme will address the truth that is needed in exploring our shared and often difficult Canadian history. Workshops may focus simply on providing opportunities for experiencing this truth but also innovative practices for bringing truth into your classroom.
- Take Action in the Classroom: This theme will focus on advancing Truth and Reconciliation in the classroom. Workshops may focus on how teachers are advancing reconciliation through innovative practices or in sharing resources for specific subject areas.
- Healing for Change: This theme will focus on Indigenous ways of learning, knowing, being, and doing. Workshops may focus on activities and practices that support Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners towards wellness and on resources available to support teachers and learners.
Advancing Truth and Reconciliation Together
We are calling on our colleagues to share their ideas for presenters who may wish to share educational projects, successful lesson plans, and any other teaching tools used to advance Truth and Reconciliation in the classroom, and on organizations that work to support schools and communities in this process. Sessions times vary depending upon the presenter, however they are usually 75 minutes long.
If you are interested in sharing your ideas, or you have a great contact that you would like to share, please fill out the Presenter Proposal Form below.
Student Success Stories
We are also requesting Student Success Stories. ASEC is looking for adult learners from either an ALC or ALP who would be interested in participating in a panel discussion at the Fall Conference. Participants would need to be prepared to discuss their story, share their experience in a centre and how it changed their life for the better, and to share what practices at their centre or program simply worked for them. ASEC will send out questions to participants ahead of time so they can prepare for the panel. The participant would be required to provide their own travel and accommodation if necessary.
If you have someone in mind that you think would be interested, please contact them and pass their information along when they have confirmed they would like to participate.
Please note: submissions are due by September 15, 2019.
Thank you in advance for taking initiative in opening up a network of communication and cooperation among all who take adult secondary education to heart. If you wish to speak directly with me, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or at 204-677-6474. I look forward to sharing conversations with you and talking with you more at the Fall Conference. Gichi Miigwitch.
