We just spent a week with a group of teachers from across the country who were participating in the Library of Parliament’s “Teachers Institute Week”. TI Week is a unique professional development opportunity for teachers of governance and citizenship education. They get to see firsthand how Parliament works and much more. The teachers met and interacted with MPs, Senators, the House and Senate Speakers, Clerks, and even the Media who cover the affairs of Parliament.
From our outside looking in position, TI Week is a very worthwhile endeavour. An amazing trickle down education process that will benefit thousands of students who someday will be voters and possibly decision makers in their communities.
Here is a link to the TI Week website:
