Professional Development Workshop for Teachers Teaching Aviation
October 22, 2021 (BC Provincial Professional Development Day)
Location: Langley Regional Airport and/or virtual
Who should attend: Teachers, administrators and career advisors / support staff who are teaching aviation, or who want to contribute to the conversation about teaching aviation, or who are supporting students as they pursue learning about aviation.
The day will begin with a keynote address from Cathy Press, CEO and Owner of Chinook Helicopters, Chief Pilot, Airline Transport Pilot (Helicopter & Aeroplane), and most recently the recipient of an Honorary Doctor of Technology degree from the University of the Fraser Valley. Panel discussions (industry leaders, training institutions, and career seekers), curriculum collaboration and sharing, and some hands-on STEM will be included. We hope to be able to include some airport facilities tours but this will depend on COVID protocols in place on the date.
