Learning is Safe Schools bookSET-BC is pleased to present two high profile BC educators in a workshop series about building inclusive classrooms.
The presentations will take place on February 26th and April 25th 2014.

Part I of the series, taking place on February 26th at the Centre of Dialogue in Burnaby, will feature Dr. Randy Cranston. Dr. Cranston, is a well known educator in the field of inclusion that has worked in various areas of the educational system. His engaging and hands-on session will lead participants in discussions about current school culture, teaming, leadership, class review, principles of inclusion and resource models. The workshop will inspire participants to reflect on their teaching philosophy, attitudes and practice.

Part II of the series will take place on April 25th also at the Centre of Dialogue in Burnaby and will feature Faye Brownlie. Faye, author of numerous teaching resources and a leader both locally as well as internationally in the field of inclusion and literacy, will be leading participants through ideas and methods on creating an inclusive and safe classroom. Specifically, Faye will be examining the roles of in-class support, the power of class reviews, performance-based reading assessments, UDL and Backwards Design.

Not in the Lower Mainland? We will be videoconferencing these sessions to sites in Victoria, Vernon, Nanaimo and Prince George. These sessions will be recorded and archived for future reference on our site in our Learning Centre. Anyone across the province may register for these sessions at a location near you. There will be a $25 fee to register which will cover the cost of snacks and lunch.
