Description

DreamCatching 2009 is the sixth in a series of biannual workshops where teachers of First Nations, Inuit and Métis students explore hands-on methods and strategies for engaging K-12 students in math, science and IT in a culturally relevant manner.

Workshops are extended length to allow participants to really engage with subject matter, and determine how it fits within their own contexts.

For the first time, DreamCatching 2009 will include concurrent Knowledge Sharing Sessions led by academics, graduate students, Elders, classroom teachers, informal science educators etc. who are actively engaged in considering how science and math can support the growth of Native students. If you have something to share please consider submitting a Knowledge Sharing Session proposal by October 15, 2008.

Note: Early bird registrations rates are available until February 15, 2009. Student rates are also available.
