Lhtakoh* – Where People, Place and Practice Flow Together

*Lhtakoh: Lheidli name for the Fraser which means “waters within each other”

The Classrooms to Communities 2020 Provincial Conference is being held virtually on October 23. Join us as we continue to connect educators from classrooms to communities.

EEPSA, in partnership with our C2C partners, hosts an annual two day conference on the October PSA day.

Because of Covid-19, this is a unique conference, in that the program will all be accessed digitally. Despite not being able to gather face-to-face in community spaces, the focus of the conference is still how to connect students to their communities. Our primary concern is the health and safety of all participants.

The Classrooms to Communities (C2C) 2020 Conference aims to support the practice of place-based learning. The conference goals are to:

  1. Model Place-Based Learning through highly interactive, experiential and replicable practices.
  2. Share and explore success stories of place-based learning as central to teaching and learning in BC’s K-12 curriculum.
  3. Inspire, support and enhance the evolving work of pre-K to 12 teachers and partners in BC schools and communities to integrate promising practices of place-based education.
  4. Build greater capacity and collaboration for a BC wide network of place-based education leaders/mentors, including pre-K to 12 teachers, schools, school districts, organizations, associations of teachers and all other interested partners.
