More Rural Teachers Videos

Here we present videos important that are neither Growing Innovation-produced nor in the Voices of Rural Education series, but which we hope will be seen, discussed and shared.

Each year the Faculty of Education at UBC’s Okanagan Campus hosts the Small Secondary School Think Tank where educators come together for two days of collaboration, inspiration and innovation.

This video provides a glimpse into the wonderful people and beautiful places of WKTEP in 2016:

The West Kootenay Teacher Education Program has been a major focus in recent years. This video outlines plans – undertaken with gratifying success in 2014 and 2015 – to move WKTEP almost entirely into the schools of five rural school districts in the West Kootenay region of southern and south-eastern British Columbia:
