Educator Workshops: Teaching the NEW Ontario Coding Curriculum
Get prepared for the new Ontario coding curriculum by building skills, knowledge and confidence.
UofT Engineering Outreach is offering live online sessions for teachers interested in learning how to approach the new coding elements in the Ontario 1–8 curriculum. These workshops will be led by our k-12 STEM Educator in Residence along with an experienced classroom educator and expert in digital education technology. These sessions will introduce participants to the basics of coding and provide instruction, insight and support as to how these new additions can be integrated into classrooms.
Through these workshops, you will:
- Be connected with an evolving community of educators.
- Provided with materials, lesson plans and real-world examples of both plugged and unplugged instruction in coding.
- Ongoing support after the sessions to keep you and your students challenged.
Who are these workshops for?
These workshops are for Ontario educators. They were designed for both complete beginners looking to get a handle on these new elements, as well as those with coding experience who want concrete suggestions and examples of how it can be used in classrooms. These sessions will feature material for both in-person and remote learning configurations.
These sessions are aimed primarily at teachers. We will be offering modified sessions for parents* who have chosen to opt-out of in-person education this fall and want to learn more about the new coding curriculum and how it can be taught at home.
Dates: Every day between August 19–21 & 24–28
Times: 2 PM–4 PM
Cost: Free for Ontario educators
Workshops are limited to 12 people per session.
Registration will be open up until 24 hours before the start of the workshop.
*While we remain steadfast in our commitment to supporting teachers, we recognize that these are complicated times. As such, we recognized that many families may choose to opt-out of in-person education in the Fall. It's with that in mind that we are offering these sessions to parents while they work alongside their child's teacher/school.
Get ready for the new curriculum!
We will be offering additional sessions if there is demand. Thank you!
