20 New TC2 Inquiry Projects (Pro-D on Friday)

by Brent Sawatzky -

Note that 20 New TC2 Inquiry Projects are available in WCLN Online Courses and FREE for classroom teacher use.

Warren Woytuck will be presenting the new Inquiry Projects in a Zoom Pro-D session this Friday. Understanding the projects and the rationale behind them will help teachers better present and assess these projects within their online courses or classrooms.  Not only are they great projects that promote deeper learning, but Warren is an excellent presenter.

You can register at the COTA site ($70) for the live session on Friday, Oct 22 @ 9:45 am.

Following the live session, a recording will be available at:  WCLN.ca > Teacher Support > Pro-D Opportunities
