Alberta Teachers Institute on Parliamentary Democracy
An Inspired Way to Teach Parliamentary Democracy
The Alberta Teachers Institute on Parliamentary Democracy brings together teachers to participate in an intensive professional development opportunity. The program provides participants with unique access to the Legislature, where they explore the traditions and roles of Alberta's parliament and enjoy an opportunity to network with fellow educators from across the province.
The 2023 program will take place at the Legislature from Sunday, November 5th to Tuesday, November 7th.
The Legislative Assembly Office will cover all accommodation and most meal expenses for the duration of the program. Accepted applicants will also be offered a subsidy of $250 to go towards supply teacher fees or travel expenses.
Education plays an integral role in strengthening our democracy, institutions, freedoms and liberties. Teachers can instill an understanding of the parliamentary system that inspires life-long participation.
Applications are currently open. This opportunity is available to educators currently teaching within the field of education or public programming, with a demonstrated interest in citizenship, history, parliamentary democracy, or social studies.
