Teachers' Conventions

Teachers’ conventions are an annual winter tradition in Alberta. Teachers from across the province attend one of ten conventions for two days each February or March. Conventions give teachers an opportunity to reflect on and learn about new and innovative pedagogical practices and theories. Conventions are a core component of teacher professionalism, which in turn enhances student learning.

Convention Contacts

Each teachers’ convention is organized by a regional convention board. Prospective speakers and exhibitors should refer to the websites of those conventions in which they are interested for more information about presenting or purchasing display space.
