Description

The Art of Collaboration – Practical Strategies
In this workshop, educators will be inspired to step outside of their comfort zone and challenge their
preconceived notions surrounding collaborative practices. Educators will learn norms of collaboration and
engage in research-based collaborative strategies which they can take back to their educational facilities.
They will have the oppourtunity to engage in critical self-reflection regarding their own collaborative
practices and how to improve them. The beauty of collaboration is all of the unseen benefits. Educators
will leave the workshop with a renewed spirit of collaboration and a toolkit of collaborative practices
