You’re about to embark on the 2021-2022 school year. Your creativity, resilience, and innovative thinking grew stronger by living through adversity in 2020-2021. Let's explore the valuable lessons coming out of a universally tough year and channel your experiences into relevant classroom sessions for your students.

Join other passionate educators just like yourself at the 2021 EdTA National Conference as we "RENEW. REBUILD. REIMAGINE.". This live-virtual conference format is affordable, easy to access, and flexible. It is two days of material for the price of one!! We will also have an in-person HUB in Metro Vancouver BC, Winnipeg Manitoba & Montreal Quebec on Friday Oct 22nd for teachers that want to gather in person again. On that Friday there will be traditional workshops and hybrid elements that tie into the live programming that will also be taking place over zoom that day. Then on Saturday we will be gathering live over zoom for everyone to learn and network together!

You'll gain wisdom to share with your students on topics from the social justice movement to living inside a worldwide pandemic. You and like-minded attendees will envision a new future for school theatre and begin rebuilding your programs in collaborative workshops!

With over 80 unique workshop offerings you will be thrilled with the scope of learning available from talented Canadians from coast to coast and some international talents too!
