Orientation (Module 1)

Provides a thorough overview of all aspects of the new initiative. During Orientation, time is provided for teachers to focus on the content and philosophy of the program. This module also introduces fundamental pedagogy, supported by practical classroom examples. To support this stage of the professional learning, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development develops online multimedia content located on this professional learning website. This site is a repository of professional learning information. As participants reflect on the information, they are encouraged to forward questions to their district program specialists. This module may be completed individually or in small groups in May, prior to a fall implementation.
