Lunch and Learn Series

Contact to Contract

The Faculty of Education prides itself on preparing well-rounded professional teachers who are committed to life-long learning and professional development. In keeping with this goal, the Faculty offers a Lunch and Learn Series each year for all students.

The topics covered in the Lunch and Learn Series are varied. They are designed to provide information and ideas that are supplementary to students’ coursework but which relate to the role of the classroom teacher. Many of the sessions are delivered by representatives of organizations whose activities are related to and supportive of the educational process in schools.


Winter Term - All sessions are on Mondays from 12:30 - 1:20 pm in Room 4C40


"The Lunch and Learn sessions empower me to be a lifelong learner and grow as an educator. The passionate and knowledgeable presenters offer invaluable resources which I save in my professional 'toolbox'" Marly
