Professional Development

Rupertsland is pleased to offer Professional Learning Opportunities to all school districts across Alberta. Designed by Métis Educations, presented by Métis Educators. Topics include:

  • Métis Identity & History
  • For reconciliation to happen, we must know who we are sitting at the table with. Educators require accurate foundational knowledge that builds competency and confidence in Métis education. Together, we will explore the narrative of who the Métis are and examine historical developments that helped shape our nation.

  • Navigating Waters in Métis Education
  • Together we are stronger! Rupertsland Centre for Teaching & Learning (RCTL) is in partnership with Alberta Métis Education Council (AMEC) to uphold the K-12 mandate in Métis education. Participants will learn more about who we are as we examine our relationship with invested education stakeholders.

  • Creating Memorable Métis Moments through Literacy
  • Choosing quality Métis literature is an important consideration for all educators when using stories to teach. This session is designed for participants to explore several authentic, recommended resources that help to create teachable moments and provide meaningful learning opportunities.

  • Building Your Foundational Knowledge in Métis Education while Addressing the new TQS
  • Participants will have the opportunity to explore authentic Métis education resources, dig deeper into the Alberta Teacher Quality Standard (TQS) and explore the ATA online self-reflection tool to create purposeful, professional goals.
