Annually, OTF and its four Affiliates co-sponsor a conference on teacher education. The conference brings together the Liaison Officers who sit on Teacher Education Liaison Committees (TELCs) at the 13 Faculties of Education across the province. The event focuses on topics related to the pre-service education of teacher candidates as they prepare for their careers in teaching, and on the role played by practicing teachers who host the candidates in Ontario classrooms.
The conference is generally a closed event, but professors, teacher candidates and others may also attend by special invitation.
