The LCEEQ Newsletter - Issue 014 - The February 2016 Edition

Conference Video


More than seven hundred educators from across the province attended the two- day LCEEQ 2016 held at the Sheraton Laval Conference Centre on February 8-9, 2016. This annual event brings together teachers, school and senior administrators, professionals in the youth and adult sectors, as well as, Cegep and University participants. The theme of Embracing Diversity … Supporting Equity offered a wide range of topics including: student voice and aspirations, teacher voice, building community in diverse classrooms, economic disadvantages, multiple intelligences, culturally relevant curriculum, …. the list goes on. The format permitted keynote speakers, featured invited speakers, and local presenters to address various aspects within the theme.

The response of the delegates on site was most positive. They have been encouraged to complete an online evaluation survey which will be available until February 19th. Those completing the survey have the opportunity to win a two hundred dollar book coupon from Corwin Press.

Following the Conference we invited three of the presenters to reflect on their experience. Click here to see what Dr. Russell Quaglia, Lisa Lande, and Chris Koch had to say.

We encourage you to mark your calendar for LCEEQ 2017 scheduled for February 13-14, 2017 when the theme will be When Diversity and Technology in the Classroom Converge.
