Attend the 2019 CAP Conference
Growing Together… Cultivating Change
APRIL 30 – MAY 3, 2019 | WHITEHORSE, YUKON

 

Northern Lights – Illuminating Our Experience

The CAP 2019 Conference, being held in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, focuses on authentic learning. Authentic learning incorporates instructional approaches that allow students to explore concepts which are meaningful, and in the context of real-world issues, but often in unconventional ways. This, in turn, increases student engagement and motivation for learning, and often makes students better equipped for future success. Our speakers will explore a variety of topics, including everything from educational leadership and democracy education, to the First Nations ways of knowing with direct application to on-the-land programming, as well as “decolonizing the classrooms” as a way to engage all learners. Conference speakers will inspire you to think “out of the box” with their enthusiasm and unconventional ideas.

The National Voice for Canadian Principals, CAP is the advocate for Principals and Vice-Principals at the national level. Working with other national educational groups, CAP presents the views and opinions of Principals, Assistant-Principals, Vice-Principals and other school administrators regarding a variety of issues and in many different forums.
