Project FLOW

Professional Development

Through Project FLOW, teachers can participate in professional learning workshops to develop their skills in facilitating action projects with their students. Participants will share opportunities and challenges facing teachers and students in implementing action projects. Tools, techniques and curriculum resources that support the development and implementation of action projects in the community will be explored. Workshops will be held across the country and there is no registration fee! The only catch is that we ask you to commit to implementing a water-based action project with your class once you get back to school.
