The Social Studies Educators Network of Canada (SSENC) was present at the annual conference of the Quebec association for social sciences teaching (AQEUS) on October 26 and 27.

Held in Sherbrooke, the gathering brought together nearly 250 people under the theme of pedagogical innovation in a changing world. Keynotes and workshops enabled participants to reflect on their practices and discover new resources to support them.  

Our president, Rachel Collishaw, presented a workshop on Canada’s participation in the Korean War. She also presented and distributed the resource created by SSENC at our booth, which she staffed with Jean-François Bertrand.

As for Jean-François, he led a workshop presenting the possibilities offered by The Collaborative platform to support inquiry-based learning, while putting primary and secondary school students in touch with expert researchers who are accessible like “living books”.

Through their presence at the conference, Rachel and Jean-François represented SSENC and its partners and were able to extend the network’s circle of friends.
