The First Nations Education Steering Committee’s First Nations Languages Conference happens every two years and offers a major networking and professional development opportunity for BC’s school and community based First Nations language educators and advocates.
Workshop proposals are now being accepted. They must relate to the conference theme, In the Spirit of Sharing, and fit one of the following broad categories:
Language teaching – creating and using language curriculum, resources, effective teaching methods, assessment and planning
Language revitalization and advocacy
Technology – tools and applications to assist in language teaching and revitalization
To apply, please use the application form on our event page at http://www.fnesc.ca/languages-conference
Travel and hotel benefits, plus a waiver of the conference registration, may be provided for up to two presenters per workshop. Workshops are typically 1.5 hours long, presented twice, but we also welcome proposals for multi-part and linked workshops.
