Description

Keynote Speakers for this year:

On Thursday February 28th is Shelley Moore. Shelley is a highly sought after teacher, researcher, speaker, and storyteller. Her research and work has been featured at national and international conferences and her work is constructed based on theory and effective practices of inclusion, special education, curriculum and teacher professional development.

On Friday March 1st, Elli Wiesbaum will be the key note speaker. Elli is an instructor for the Applied Mindfulness and Mediation Certificate Program at the University of Toronto in the Continuing Education Faculty. Her ongoing work with Plum Villages focuses on a holistic approach to education, working simultaneously with teachers, students, parents and administrators to build sustainable inclusive communities. This workshop will offer participants the opportunity to experience hands on mindfulness based practices and create a toolbox of practical mindfulness activities that can be brought directly into your classroom or workplace setting.


Morning Session (9:00 am to 11:45 am) & Afternoon Session (1:00 pm to 3:30 pm)


This year’s topics will be …

  • Thursday: “Inclusive Education: Who, What, Where, When, Why?” This session will deconstruct what inclusive education means in today's classrooms and communities. We will also discuss common misunderstnadings and myths and leave with ideas and possiblities of inclusive learning communities and all who benefit.

  • Friday: "Integrating Mindfulness into Education" This workshop will examine why mindfulness has become an increasingly accepted and popular resource within both Education and Healthcare settings. We will explore mindfulness through the lens of neuroscience and hands-on activities to create a foundational understanding of how to effectively apply mindfulness within school settings, with students, colleagues, and your own life in order to reduce stress, anxiety and burnout and increase resiliency, self-regulation focus and wellbeing.
