CATE 2023 PRE-CONFERENCE
York University (in person)
Rob And Cheryl McEwen Graduate Study & Research Building (MB) G102
Time: 1:30 – 4:15 P.M. / 13 h 30 – 16 h 15
Rebuilding networks and connections over a cup of tea…or three!
After three years of nearly virtual conferencing and meetings, we are (re)learning the art of meeting and connecting with people. Our goal with this pre-conference is to provide space for people to rebuild relationships and to make new connections with others in teacher education. To identify common challenges and to leave with new projects, new strategies, new goals and new partners to work with.
The structure of the pre-conference is keeping in mind the focus/theme : (un)conferencing. We invite you all to take this opportunity after a gap of two years to connect, interact, share and reform relationships with each other. In order to build back these connections over our shared interests of research in teacher education and several aspects of it like public policy and narrative around Teacher education, curricular developments and movements over the course of the last decade, changing/evolving conversation around professional development programs but not limited to.

Design Thinking and Teacher Education
Saturday June 1st 2019, 2-5 pm, Ponderosa Commons: Oak House (PCOH) 1001
In the field of education, design thinking has witnessed an increase in interest nationally and internationally. We will be considering Design Thinking from a variety of perspectives from university to school contexts, always placing the student at the centre and with a view to how Design Thinking can innovate our practice. Please join us and be part of this informative and important dialogue. This pre-conference may also be of benefit in preparing a submission for the October 2019 Working Conference “Preparing Teachers as Curriculum Designers”.
We will begin with Canadian teacher educators offering examples, possibilities, challenges and critiques of Design Thinking in schools.
Dr. Sharon Friesen, University of Calgary
Dr. Doug Clark, University of Calgary
Dr. Lisa Starr. McGill University
Dr. Sheryl Smith-Gilman. McGill University
We will then move in to breakout sessions to engage in professional dialogue and sharing of successes, challenges and application of design thinking in teacher education.
How can design thinking inform teacher education programs and program revisioning?
How do we incorporate design thinking processes in our teacher education programs that support teacher candidates in becoming design thinkers?
Light refreshments will be served.
