[Good afternoon,

I’d like to first introduce myself. I’m the marketing and communications specialist at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology(SAIT) for the School of Health and Public Safety.]

[The reason I’m reaching out to you today is we have a number of programs offered at SAIT that have interprovincial agreements in place offering reserved seats for residents of Saskatchewan.]

[We are looking for additional ways to ensure that individuals in Saskatchewan are aware of these opportunities and disseminate information within the province [for] individuals who are looking at the career options available to them. In particular our Nuclear Medicine Technology program.

We have a number of materials that can be provided in soft copy versions, which I’ve included here, and would be happy to share hardcopy versions should you want this format.

Thank you,

Adam Thurston

Global Learning in AG Conference (Online)

We would love to help “spread the word” about this professional development opportunity with the goal of “tearing down” barriers to teachers advancing global learning in agriculture:  #GLAG18: Cultivating Global Learners.  Our keynote should be great, “Transforming Global Agriculture Through Youth Engagement” with Appiah Boateng, founder and Executive Director of 4-H Ghana, and Trent McKnight, founder of AgriCorps. You might enjoy this short clip from Trent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAuD-9CEzdQ

This is our third year of the conference in an online format. You can search #GLAG17 or #GLAG16 on Twitter to get a feel for past “feeds”.

I want to  make sure you are aware of two things:

1)      We want to learn from you! Submit presentation proposals.

  1.       We are soliciting sharing of scholarship and best practices for advancing the dialogue around Global Learning and participants have two options for dissemination of their innovation and research: synchronous or asynchronous. Submissions are really simple and are due on November 15th. Truly, this is for ANYONE passionate about global engagement in agriculture. All levels of educators are welcome (secondary and post-secondary). This is a non-discipline specific, unbiased sharing of scholarship of research and creative accomplishment and scholarship of teaching and learning.  You can learn more here: http://aese.psu.edu/teachag/global/global-learning-in-agriculture-conference/request-for-applications

2)      Sharing is Caring.

  1.       I know when you find something it awesome, the only thing that makes it better is sharing with someone else! There is a limited availability for the awesome Conference-in-a-Box! Please personally invite friends and colleagues that you think would be interested J: http://www.cvent.com/events/global-learning-in-agriculture-conference-glag18-/event-summary-daa92625b5034d9c816e30f57cd6a9f0.aspx .

The Education Perfect Science Championships

Dear

SSTS Member,

The Education Perfect Science Championships will take place from the 14th to the 21st of August this year and as a SSTS member you can register all your students for free.

REGISTER NOW!

The Education Perfect Science Championships is a 7-day event run during National Science Week 2017. This is a great opportunity to motivate and inspire all students and raise the profile of Science at your school. The content follows the Australian Curriculum, NSW Syllabus, Victorian Curriculum and New Zealand Curriculum so this is a brilliant chance for students to revise and consolidate what they are learning in Science.

Are your students ready to compete?

Here’s your checklist:

  1. Register your students.

– Your students are already registered if they have a current subscription to Education Perfect in any subject area.

– For any additional students from your school whom you would like to register, please follow this process ASAP!  The registration fee is $5 per student but if you quote the code “SSTS” when you register, all your students will be registered for free.

  1. Warm up your students with the content. Now is a good time to get your students practising as soon as they are registered. It’s a great opportunity to check out our Science Investigations content!
  2. If you are after a winning strategy for your school you can discuss your game plan with the Education Perfect Team, you can book a time that suits you, directly here.
  3. Interact with the EP community on the EP Facebook page to share the fun with the world! Teachers, students and supporters are all welcome to ‘like’ the page, and share comments, post photos, and cheer each other on.  We can’t wait to see your students have fun while they achieve their academic goals!

Learn. Compete. Win.  Let the Championships begin!

Computer Science PD @ U of S in June!

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Saskatchewan is offering a one-day teacher’s workshop for Saskatchewan high school computer science teachers.

From our department’s perspective, a strong CS curriculum in high school is more important than ever: starting this past September, we designated high school CS 30 as a pre-requisite for direct entry into our stream for Computer Science majors, which traditionally had not been the case.

Novice or first-time computer science teachers are particularly welcome, as are teachers/administrators from schools that do not currently offer CS 30 but might consider doing so in the near future.  We also welcome more experienced CS teachers, who we hope will be willing to share their experiences with implementing the new provincial CS curriculum.

We have money for this (generously provided by Google and their CS4HS program), and we can cover travel expenses for out-of-town teachers, and possibly even substitute teaching costs.


The basic event details are as follows:
What: Computer Science Teacher’s Workshop
Where: Saskatoon, University of Saskatchewan Campus
When: Friday, June 2nd, ~8:30am to ~4:00pm
Interested participants can contact Dr. Jeff Long: jeff.long@usask.ca
