Professional Development

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

  • Métis Identity & History (More than Mixed)
  • Educators require accurate foundational knowledge that builds competency and confidence in Métis education. Together, we will explore and examine the narrative of historical and contemporary issues that have influenced who we are as a people. Learning about the strong, diverse Métis community will benefit all students.

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

  • Métis Literature Across the Curriculum – Why Literacy is More Than Language Arts…
  • 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.

  • One Size Does Not Fit All – What Do You Need?
  • Rupertsland Centre for Teaching & Learning (RCTL) understands each region/school/district is unique. We understand needs may differ when delivering the best for their students. Please contact us at and we will design an exclusive professional learning session for your staff.
