The Ontario Teachers’ Federation is pleased to continue supporting self-directed teacher learning through OTF Connects. Developed for teachers by teachers, our free professional learning webinar program provides you with easy-to-access PD right at your home computer or mobile device.

OTF Connects invites teachers to learn, share and collaborate with colleagues from across the province through rich, relevant professional learning opportunities. Teachers leave each session with immediately useful ideas for their classroom.

This year, our focus will be supporting teachers to enhance their classroom practice in Mathematics, technology, curriculum, Kindergarten, and wellness.

Check the OTF Connects 2017 Fall Calendar and share with your colleagues.
