2011 - 2012
The annual teachers conference of the Réseau québécois des
CFER is being held on the 21 and 22 of June at the Hotel Lords
of St-Hyacinthe. Under the theme “Teachers make the difference,"
these two days will provide opportunities for our teachers to
share their best practices in classroom management and plant
management. In addition, two courses will be offered: one on the
support of young people with autism spectrum disorder or
language disorder and the other support involves working with
young people with mental health problems.
We are also proud to announce that our conference Keynote will be given by M.Égide Royer, psychologist and professor in special education at the Faculty of Education at the Université Laval. His speech, entitled Passion for success: youth sometimes difficult and the teachers who make a difference in their lives, will set the tone for the following workshops.
"A wise man once said that change could be compared to the challenge of mounting a mattress double spiral staircase. It is a demanding job, but once it is in place, nobody wants to back down. We have reason to be proud of what we have accomplished in education. There are major gains that have been made during the last 25 years and nobody wants to go back. However, we do not have the right to be satisfied. The situation of young people who exhibit emotional or behavioral problems remains a concern. This conference presents what is known about the most effective practices for teachers to continue to make a difference in the success of many of these students. '
