2021 Small Secondary School Think Tank

The Small Secondary School Think Tank is back as a virtual event! 

Each year the Okanagan School of Education hosts the Small Secondary School Think Tank. This two-day event is an opportunity for educators to come together to collaborate, inspire and innovate.  Teams from small, primarily rural, secondary schools and school districts participate in an empathetic design process to support a case study school. This is a process where educators creatively identify problems, and then solutions, using design thinking, a philosophy supported by the Innovative Learning Centre.

This year’s theme is Imagining the Futures of Small Secondary Schools.

May 27 and 28
Online via Zoom

Registration is limited to small and rural schools educators and administrators, with a maximum of three participants from each school district. Schools can expect an invitation to the event by mid-April.

About the event

The Small Secondary School Think Tank was created in 2013 as a result of the Rural Education Advisory expressing a need for an annual event where educators from across the province could come together in an effort to share ideas and collaborate on the unique challenges faced by small schools in British Columbia.
