U of W to host conference on at-risk youth strategies

  • Print

The University of Winnipeg’s Faculty of Education is hosting an international conference from July 10 to 13 in which educators will gather to share best practices and strategies for supporting at-risk youth in a series of seminars.

The joint Lost Prizes/International Centre for Innovation in Education seminars will focus on the areas of creativity, enrichment, and identifying and developing the talents of marginalized, disengaged populations. U of W says it will continue to host this gathering annually, attracting expertise in the areas of giftedness, creative and critical thinking, and at-risk children and youth. Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Education courses will be offered to students immediately before and after the seminars/conference.

In addition, there will be breakout workshops by U of W faculty and staff, local educators and student groups on topics such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), alternative education, global citizenship, journaling to promote critical thinking among marginalized adult learners, just and effective schools, multicultural education, programming for unengaged students, supporting refugee children and youth, and voices of vulnerable young people.

Attendance at the Lost Prizes/ICIE seminars will be applicable to those working on their School Administrator's and Principal's certificates. Participants who attend the three days of sessions on July 11, 12 and 13 will be able to register 18 hours in the area of Instruction with the Professional Certification Unit of Manitoba Education.
