We are excited to announce that registration for Cohort 21 – Season 11 is open! As all CIS Schools prepare for a fresh start this unique professional learning community (PLC) is the perfect place for new and veteran teachers to accelerate their growth and connect with other educators who are passionate about professional inquiry and action.
While the last two years have been challenging it has revealed and amplified the importance of professional learning networks and their ability to support and lift up educators when they need it the most. Since its inception in 2012 the mission of Cohort 21 has been to build a community of passionate CIS Ontario educators who are interested in refining and redesigning their practice through the exploration of new pedagogies, ideas, and tools. This professional learning experience has always been for those who are ready and willing to engage in professional and personal growth. Those who had the bandwidth and were looking for professional connections sought out Cohort 21 and made the time and space to engage with this year-long action-oriented PLC. Despite the pandemic, Season 10 cohort was one of the biggest in our history with 72 participants from across our CIS Ontario community of schools.
** Season 10 support ratios **
Inspired by our community of shared needs, interests, and passions, Cohort 21 – Season 10 was structured around four themes and guiding questions that were felt to be the most urgent and important across all CIS Ontario schools. The Action Plan format that personalizes the experience for each participant was still the vehicle that pushed the inquiry process forward but the shared themes allowed for really powerful collaboration and connection to occur.
As always, our learning experience is agile, responsive, and as you can see from the themes above flexible enough to allow all participants to find a personalized and authentic focus for their inquiry and action plan.
As we celebrate the decade-long evolution of this professional learning community we are excited to announce that Season 11 of Cohort 21 will be returning to a face-to-face format for the 2022-2023 academic year. We will be incorporating all the learning from the last two years to augment the experience and provide new ways to deepen the inquiry and action process.
