Learning Pathways

Effective Oct. 6 our professional learning program is reorganized into certified Learning Pathways to link STEM education across the curriculum

Through Learning Pathways, educators of all levels can participate in a professional learning journey that builds towards certification in STEM-based concepts. With a focus on engage-practice-reflect, learners merge science, technology, engineering, and mathematics across the curriculum and disciplines to develop a well-rounded approach to their practice that will help to prepare students to be engaged citizens who can transform society with innovative and sustainable solutions.

A learning path is a variety of learning options linked in a structure for learners to progress through three levels: Investing, Developing, and Innovating.

How it works

Through the Learning Pathways you will navigate multiple levels and choices along the journey to achieve milestones. Once all levels are completed you will be recognized as a Let’s Talk Science STEM Certified Educator. These pathways will be tracked using a micro-credentialing tool called Badgr that is easily accessible within the new professional learning sidekick, Canvas.

Benefits of the Learning Pathways program:

  • The Learning Pathways are a mix of required and optional learning experiences through various modes of delivery, including live and self-paced.
  • Learning is modelled in an engage-practice-reflect cycle and scaffolded in a format that will meet an educator’s individual learning and development goals.
  • By following a pathway, educators will obtain the skills, knowledge and confidence required to develop a learning culture and deliver the necessary learning opportunities.
  • By the end of their journey, an educator will feel confident using trusted STEM learning strategies and incorporating core global competencies into their teaching practice.

Expanding our lineup of professional learning resources with the launch of the first Learning Pathways course on Oct. 6

The STEM Cross-Curricular Pathway focuses on ways to incorporate STEM into your teaching practice holistically. Highlighting sustainable development goals, literacy and more, this pathway will help you and your students discover the interrelationships of all subjects while at the same time focusing on using tools to approach inquiry, design thinking and problem-solving.
