Session Outline:

The Swan Valley School Division proudly hosts "Harvest 2015", another session in a history of 'unconferences' held on the MTS Professional Development Friday in October.  Attendees have the option of one of three locations (Early, Middle, or Senior Years), and will spend time and energy networking together within supportive learning environments.

Attendees are essentially using the infrastructure (work space, computing equipment, networks, wifi, projectors, interactive whiteboards, etc.) of the Division to further enhance skills and interests relevant to their work responsibilities.  It is the belief of the organizers that teachers benefit greatly from the time to connect and plan on what most suits their individual professional learning needs.  Harvest 2015 will once again provide an outline for attendees to complete following registration, indicating their needs and interests.  In the past, both informal and intentionally planned groups have convened at various times during the day to learn together.  Other people have intentionally planned their day being alone as it suited their specific need.  

The focus is absolutely on professional autonomy, and the belief that teachers and professional staff know best what it is they should be learning during scheduled professional development time.  Feedback indicates gratitude for the opportunity, and arrangements have been made to continue with what staff members know is working for them.  


Historically, attendees of Harvest sessions have been teachers, administrators, clinicians and pre-service teachers.  Educators generally looking for a useful professional development experience will benefit from Harvest 2015.

Prerequisite: The only prerequisites are a willingness to and interest in working independently and an open mind to learning new things!  Education is fast-changing, and spending time keeping ourselves current is certainly one of the goals of Harvest 2015.
