Each year The Manitoba Teachers’ Society makes funds available for projects by members and local associations for professional development and public relations.
Collaborative Learning Team Grants
The Manitoba Teachers’ Society is committed to supporting collaborative learning teams with grant funding. These grants support teacher-initiated professional learning that focuses on problems of practice to improve instruction and ultimately student learning. These projects will take the form of action research and/or study groups.
A facilitator will provide support and guidance to the collaborative learning team at three of their meetings, as well as throughout the inquiry process. This will include refining a study focus, looking at current research, developing a plan, reflecting and analyzing information collected, and preparing a plan to share the research.
The deadline for Collaborative Learning Team Grant applications is Friday, October 16, 2020.
