Professional Learning for Ontario Educators – Program Archive

Updated: March 16, 2022

OECM, in collaboration with Dell Technologies and Advanced Learning Partnerships, provided access to a series of free, high-quality Professional Learning (PL) webinar sessions, specially curated and designed by and for Ontario’s K-12 and post-secondary educators (i.e. faculty members, principals, teachers, coaches, classroom educators, etc.)

Recordings for several of these previously held webinars and workshop sessions are available and can be accessed here, for a limited time.

Presented between August 30, 2021, and March 2, 2022, these sessions and workshops were tailored to support educators’ specific teaching and learning goals. Sessions were facilitated by accomplished education leaders and organized in three pathways: Social and Emotional Learning, Equity and Inclusion, and Achieving Excellence.

This inaugural program was offered by OECM through our End-User Computing Devices and Services agreement with Platinum Supplier Partner, Dell Technologies.
