CALGARY TELUS CONVENTION CENTRE(CTCC) and HYATT - address and driving directions

PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

“On the two school days of your assigned teachers’ convention, you have a legal and professional responsibility to attend convention. If you are not able to make it safely to your assigned convention, however, your collective agreement may include impassable roads or inclement weather clauses that you can access. If your collective agreement does not include language specific to road conditions or weather, you may make use of the personal leave clauses of your agreement in most cases. Please be aware that using any of these types of leave may require you to pay substitute costs, forego a portion of your salary and benefits, or report to your school or another work location in your district. Refer to your collective agreement for more information.

Ukulele 101

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

If you are just getting started with ukulele in your classroom or studio, this session is for you! Learn tips, tricks and money-saving hacks to kick-start your program. Ukulele for Children author Christina O'Brien will walk you through some ways to get started and cover all of the basics such as tuning options, instrument storage ideas, classroom management, warm-up activities, free online resources, and why she NEVER starts with C, F and G chords. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion too.

This "Ukulele 101" session continues seamlessly into "Ukulele.Simplified" right after it. Stay for both to get lots of hands on time with the ukulele and the material presented.

There will be some ukuleles on site for participant use during the presentation. Be sure to get there early to snag one!
