37. The Utilization of the Flexible Timetable and Learning Centres to Maximize Learning Opportunity for Students and Staff at Osoyoos Secondary School

District: No. 53 (Okanagan-Similkameen)

In Osoyoos, this project inquires into teachers’ use of innovative teaching practices to best facilitate student learning. Combining flipped classrooms and flexible timetables, interdisciplinary and cross-curricular teaching, the project takes the form of a search, with teachers seeking to “find more meaningful ways to work together” for the benefit of their students and communities. Empowerment of students and the innovative commitments of educators in collaboration combine toward the transformation of schools, the renewal of curriculum and the revitalization of pedagogies.
