What's new at the OMLTA?

Bonjour!

The International Languages Resource Project is well underway and the Financial Literacy Resource Project is almost complete!

Please see our December Update for all our happenings as we make our way toward the winter holidays.

#OMLTAmotfinal: Continue the conversation

November 2nd, 2016 | Posted by webmaster

#OMLTAmotfinal Did you read our Fall Communication Issue? Each issue we will introduce a new topic of discussion relating to Second Language Teaching. We will be sharing resources to our Members-Only section and posing a question to continue the discussion on twitter. The Fall issue focuses on Promoting Well-Being.

Identified by the Ontario Ministry of Education in Achieving Excellence: A Renewed Vision for Education in Ontario, promoting well-being, is one of four interconnected goals for education.
As language teachers, we play an important role in promoting well-being in all aspects of our practice and have the unique opportunity to embed well-being in the Curriculum through task-based learning.

Question: How do you promote well-being in your learning environment?

Have the ‘Last Word / mot final’ – Using the hashtag #OMLTAmotfinal, share your ideas with your colleagues

Don’t forget – it Pays to be a Member: As language teachers, we play an important role in promoting well-being in all aspects of our practice and have the unique opportunity to embed well-being in the Curriculum through task-based learning. See examples in the “Members Only” section of the OMLTA website

The OMLTA-AOPLV has been much more than an organization that provides professional development par excellence: it is our province’s number one source of advocacy for great profession. Here’s to another 125 years of amazing work on our collective behalf!
