On October 24, 2018, the LATD will bring together lead associate teachers, teacher candidates, graduate students, university professors, high school students, parents, and community partners for discussion, activities, and workshops related to different dimensions of Culturally Responsive and Relevant Pedagogy (CRRP) and deeply connected to PED 3141, 3142, and PED 4141, PED 4142.
Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Nicole West-Burns (see attached bio) who will present Exploring Ourselves & Deepening our Practice with Culturally Responsive and Relevant Pedagogy. She will guide educators to reflect upon their “lens” they utilize as they engage in schools and within the educational system daily; think about their own positionality and aspects of their identities that have an impact on their classrooms, school environments and daily decisions; deepen understandings of the foundational components and pedagogical practices tied to CRRP; and think about a next step on their journey of becoming a practitioner who employs a CRRP approach.
Workshops will include addressing issues of racism and antiracism in schools, using spoken word poetry as culturally relational and sustainable practice, the pursuit of equity in schools and classrooms, and more.
To see the full Lead Associate Teacher Day program and to register for the day, please click here. Spaces are limited to 60 teacher candidates. 30 Associate Teachers and Principals will join you during this amazing day of professional learning workshop. You need to register by October 19th, 4:00pm in order to attend.

As you may know, the Student Academic Success Service (SASS) and the Teaching and Learning Support Service (TLSS), in collaboration with the Leadership, Learning and the Centre for Organizational Development and Learning (CODL) of Human Resources, are currently developing a new vision to reimagine academic success and excellence in teaching. This exercise is based on the active participation and dynamic contribution of the university community. To this end, we are seeking your support in recruiting participants.
The next step in this project is an event that focuses on the creativity of participants to re-imagine uOttawa in terms of academic success and teaching excellence. By using the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method, an innovative and dynamic method, participants will be able to co-construct, with their colleagues, their vision of academic success and teaching excellence. This activity will be led by Chrystia Chudczak, a LEGO SERIOUS PLAY certified facilitator and chief design officer at the University.
I invite you to recruit students (undergraduate and graduate) and support staff who you feel have a lot to contribute and are willing to participate in the whole day. Interested parties can register online. You can refer students to the SASS Facebook page to learn more about the event, which will be held in English and French on November 30, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 90 University (room 140). Lunch will be provided day and there will be door prizes.
here is the link to the registration page which should now work for everyone :
Feel free to contact me for more information.
