Teachers’ conventions have been established through provincial legislation in the province to provide teachers a forum to renew their professional skills on an annual basis. The Greater Edmonton Teachers’ Convention Association develops programs of general interest to teachers at all levels across a broad field of curriculum. Convention planning takes into account the needs of individual teachers to become aware of new knowledge and trends in teaching and school organization, and also their needs to establish and broaden communications with other teachers on matters of professional concern. The general nature of the convention is emphasized; by choosing programs and frameworks with broad appeal; by retaining keynote speakers whose message will be of interest to a majority of teachers; and, by limiting the influence of external special interest groups.

Please register on the Sched site using your school email address. We will be confirming attendees via their email addresses. All updates and last minute notices will be delivered via the Sched email out system.
All pre-recorded sessions will be available throughout the conference and for 3 weeks following. Please take note that there is a password for all the pre-recorded sessions. The Sched site has more information about this.
Most of the live sessions (barring sensitive subject sessions and ATA sessions) will be recorded and 24 hours following the session, the link for the live session will be replaced by the recording directly on the Sched site.
Live sessions have capacity limits and adding a session to your schedule does NOT guarentee your entrance into the session. Please note that the sessions are being recorded and you will still have access 24 hours later.
STUDENT TEACHERS: You can access the full conference as well, simply follow the link above to the Sched site and register using your university email.
