Summer & Winter Institutes

Institutes are short, intensive courses that allow educators and pre-service teachers the opportunity for professional development outside of the school calendar year.


The Summer Institute 2020 introduced teachers to the Elementary Physical and Health Education (PHE) curriculum, content knowledge, pedagogical content knowledge, practical experiences, and professional responsibilities of a successful elementary school teacher.

The course expanded elementary teachers’ level of confidence and competence when delivering the B.C. Physical Health and Education (PHE) Curriculum. During the one-week course, learners worked through modules on the B.C. PHE K-7 curriculum, the Indigenous holistic approaches to teaching and learning, creating equity, diversity and inclusion in PHE, quality physical education, assessment, physical literacy and the comprehensive school health model.
