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.

In today's rapidly evolving educational landscape, it is imperative that we critically examine traditional power structures within the classroom and foster an environment that promotes equity and progressive educational practices. This session aims to engage educators in a transformative experience that explores decentring the teacher and reimagining hierarchical structures in the classroom while centring pedagogical approaches rooted in radical love, emotional intelligence, and anti-oppression. By embracing these principles, we can embark on a journey toward reimagining the educational experience and empowering our students to become active participants in shaping their own learning journey.

The proposed session seeks to ignite a paradigm shift within education. By engaging in this session, participants will gain valuable insights, practical strategies, and inspiration to reimagine their classrooms and become catalysts for positive change in the educational landscape. Together, we can create inclusive, empowering, and transformative learning spaces that nurture the potential of every student and unlock a brighter future.
