Upcoming Calgary PD

Hello, Calgary ATESL members!

This past Tuesday, we started off our programming for 2020 with a very informative session on An Open Source Digital Literacy Curriculum for Low Literacy Newcomers. We want to thank Olivia Chen and Christine Do for presenting and to TIES for hosting. We also want to thank all the members who were able to join us!

We are in the process of finalizing the details for the upcoming sessions. Below is a tentative schedule to give you an idea of the topics and also to save the dates! We will send more details of each session closer to the time.
