Minds on Media
Minds On Media (MOM) is a model of professional learning that respects the learner’s ‘desire to know’. Minds on Media sessions offered through OTF Connects will focus on empowering participants to gain expertise in both the content and the resources to continue their learning afterwards. These webinars will be interactive, conversational and full of practical ideas. Sessions will be ‘learner focused’, so bring your enthusiasm, challenges, questions and scenarios!
These sessions are offered in partnership with The Critical Thinking Consortium (TC2), and are designed to assist teachers in developing a deeper understanding of critical thinking and its applications in their classrooms. These sessions will be most effective for teachers who have attended a critical thinking conference or summer workshop offered through OTF. Registrants are welcome to submit one of their own critical thinking challenges for tweaking and fortifying.
These financial literacy workshops are offered in partnership with the Investor Education Fund (IEF) and the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC).
