Learning how to engage students at the Institute

Teachers and coordinators will congregate in Montreal this week for the annual CLC Teacher Institute. Over 75 teachers and coordinators from across Quebec will be taking part in the event, happening Tuesday, Jan. 21 and Wednesday, Jan. 22.

This year’s conference is all about engaging students in the community. Day one includes a panel of teachers discussing and sharing Community Learning Centre Institute and Community Based Service Learning projects.

In the afternoon, participants will have the difficult task of choosing one of the following field trip locations: the Concordia University greenhouse and Éco-Quartier Peter-McGill, the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre, the McCord Museum exhibits or the Redpath Museum with a video conference with the Royal Botanical Garden.

The second day will feature a human library with 12 individuals and groups sharing expertise. The afternoon will be used for planning future CBSL projects.

The conference continues to grow, which is exciting for The Community Learning Centre Initiative and CBSL. Be sure to check back in the coming weeks to see some of the CBSL projects shared here on the blog!
