Walk Alongside: A Parent Engagement Forum
Walk Alongside: A Parent Engagement Forum will offer participants the opportunity to:
- Deepen their understanding of what parent engagement is, why it matters and how to embed it in practice.
- Interrupt the "taken-for-grantedness" of schooling to create a landscape on which parent knowledge is honoured and used alongside teacher knowledge to shape curriculum, teaching and learning.
- Work together in a “gentle revolution” to have parent and family engagement become an integral aspect of all schools.
Register as a team: four individuals with at least one parent, representing diverse levels and positions within a school, school division, early learning centre, health care setting, government branch, division or ministry.
