What's new at the OMLTA?

Projet à Québec is back!

March 22nd, 2015 | Posted by webmaster

On behalf of the OMLTA/AOPLV Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce to all FSL educators in Ontario that Projet à Québec will be running again this summer. A special thank you goes to the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Government of Ontario for their financial support of this exciting professional development opportunity. New this year, Projet à Québec will provide professional development opportunities for 50 French as a second language teachers (Core French, Extended French, French Immersion) from Catholic and Public English-language district school boards across Ontario.

Le programme de 2015 aura lieu à la ville de Québec du 13 au 22 juillet. Cette formation intensive de dix jours se concentre sur le développement des compétences linguistiques des enseignants et à la sensibilisation culturelle à travers divers ateliers et excursions. Les frais des sessions, les excursions et l’hébergement sont pris en charge. Les lauréats auront seulement l’obligation de payer leur voyage aller-retour et les repas.

The deadline to submit an application is Friday April 10th at 5:00 pm. If you are interested in applying for this unique professional development opportunity, please see the following links:

Cursos Profesores 2015

Ever since I decided to embark on a career in teaching languages, the OMLTA has been an important part of my professional development and personal growth. My first experience with the OMLTA occurred at the 2000 Spring Conference where I served as a student monitor during my pre-service year. I arrived at the hotel feeling like a deer starring into headlights. I was quickly greeted by the volunteer coordinator and put to work. Every detail had been thought of and the day ran without a glitch. I was honoured to introduce and thank the presenters, bringing back many of the skills and strategies shared to my practicum placement. I’ve been teaching ten years now and have not missed a conference! It is an opportunity to learn, to share, to re-connect, to meet, to re-energize, and to bring new things back to my classroom!
