Montreal, October 11, 2019 - The conference “Building together in a moving world. The human I take care of it. ”, Which is being held today at Collège Letendre, brings together some 450 teachers, educators and school administrators from private preschools and primary schools in the regions of Montreal, Montérégie, Estrie, Laval, Laurentides, Lanaudière and of the Outaouais. This conference addresses the theme of the human being and aims to enrich reflection on the actions that can be taken in schools in the face of issues of mental health, anxiety among young people, work-life balance and professional development.
"It is essential for us to offer a conference that responds to the primary concerns of teachers, professionals and members of management," said Patrick L'Heureux, director of preschool and primary education services at the FEEP. For example, anxiety among young people is proving to be an increasingly present issue in the classroom. Thus, we offer a conference and a series of workshops which aim to support our teachers and equip them to meet the needs of their students, while taking care of themselves. In addition to promoting networking, this conference is a privileged place to share knowledge and exchange with experts from the world of education. "
The Symposium brings together renowned experts from the world of education, including Dr. Nadia Gagnier, a well-known psychologist and speaker, who will open the event with a conference on work-life balance. She will also lead a workshop on anxiety in children. In total, a choice of 24 workshops is offered to participants. Among the workshop leaders, let us mention Diane Martel, pedagogical consultant, who focuses on human-centered interventions rather than behavior. Christian Dumais, Ph. D., professor of French didactics at the University of Quebec in Trois-Rivières, highlights the development of the competence to communicate orally. Pascale Goday, teacher in musical education and choral singing at the Collège international Marie-de-France and recipient of a prize for educational innovation from the FEEP, explains her approach to sound ecology adapted to the school.
