The goals of the professional learning program are to enable teachers to build capacity for facilitating open inquiry. To achieve these goals, the CREST professional learning program provides opportunities for teachers to engage with, and discuss, open inquiry, reflect upon and improve their teaching philosophies and practices, and build their networks with other teachers.
Our workshops provide opportunities for teachers to explore the CREST framework and associated materials, share their practice, experiences, and ideas, and collaboratively advance their knowledge and understandings of and about science, technology and engineering, and pedagogical practices for facilitating inquiry.
Teachers in any stage of their career, with any degree of teaching experience, are encouraged to engage in our professional learning program.
