What is an InnovatED Night?

InnovatED Nights aim to bring together educational thought leaders from across Ontario to highlight innovative approaches to teaching and learning that prepare our students to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. You will also hear about the innovative programs happening across the province, learn best practice tips for staying engaged with current trends, and hear insights into the needs of our school systems. It is our hope that these nights will foster community and connection for educators across the province.
