Exploring the Many Pathways to Learning is a resources evaluation project that engages teachers in the evaluation of learning resources for use in Saskatchewan classrooms. Your participation in this project will support teacher colleagues across the province by providing recommendations of resources in real and virtual formats, vetted by teachers, to support Saskatchewan’s diverse learners.
Members are required to evaluate resources for renewed curricula. All terms are for one year upon appointment with the potential for renewal of an additional term. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their application with their employer. Read more on the curricular areas included, the qualifications required of evaluators and the process for application.
The Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation, through STF Professional Learning, has developed the Provincial Facilitator Community to support the lifelong learning of teachers by providing innovative and high-quality professional growth opportunities. This community consists of a diverse group of dedicated educators who are supported in their understanding of quality professional development and the art of facilitation. In turn, participants plan and facilitate professional learning opportunities in their area of expertise for teachers throughout the province.
Selected participants will have opportunities for collaborative professional learning within the community and will be supported in their skill and knowledge development.
Teachers, school-based administrators and consultants who have a passion for teaching and learning are encouraged to get involved.
In 2021-22 we hope to develop or grow cohorts in several areas including early learning, early literacy, mathematics, accreditation, social and emotional well-being and instructional leadership.
A minimum of five days of release is required by each individual in the community from their employer. Expenses related to sub release and travel will be reimbursed based on the principles of reasonable and actual expenses as guided by Travel Reimbursement for Members. An honorarium will be paid to facilitators in lieu of the planning time required to prepare for professional learning facilitation days and workshops.
Deadline for application: March 26, 2021
