Sponsored by the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, the annual British Columbia Teachers’ Institute on Parliamentary Democracy is an intensive four-day professional development opportunity for teachers of social studies and related subjects in elementary, middle and secondary school. Participating teachers return to their schools with an enhanced understanding of parliamentary democracy and political process in B.C.
The next session of the B.C. Teachers' Institute on Parliamentary Democracy will be held from October 16-20, 2018 in Victoria.
Applications are being accepted until June 29, 2018.
Thank you to the 30 teachers from across the province who participated in the October 2017 session of the B.C. Teachers' Institute on Parliamentary Democracy. During an intensive four days in Victoria, the teachers collaborated to produce six engaging new lesson plans on topics related to governance, parliamentary procedure and democracy. Visit the Learning Resources page to access all lesson plans.
