Nanjing educators attend OCENET’s leadership program

 

In March 2018 a delegation from Nanjing, China, comprised of 24 members from 15 different schools and the Vice Director of the Education Research Department of Nanjing School Board, participated in a special program to learn about the Ontario educational system, visit OCDSB schools, and improve English language skills.

Educators from around the world travel to Ottawa to participate in OCENET’s educational training programs. Teachers and educational administrators from countries such as China, South Korea, Japan, Colombia, Nigeria, Spain and Sweden, among others, recognize the value of the partnership between the OCDSB and OCENET for its instructional approach which provides intensive in-service customized to the visiting teachers, and is delivered in OCENET’s classrooms at 440 Albert Street in conjunction with “hands-on” experience at OCDSB schools. These groups of educators may visit up to several months. In the process, Canadian teachers learn about educational practices in other countries. In addition, most of the international educators learn about Canadian culture by living with a Homestay family.
