Small Secondary Schools Think Tank
The Small Secondary School Think Tank was created in 2013 as a result of the Rural Education Advisory (www.ruralteachers.com) 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.
UBC’s Okanagan School of Education has hosted the Small Secondary School Think Tank for the past five years. The Think Tank takes place in the Innovative Learning Centre (ILC) Learning Lab, located in the Engineering, Management and Education (EME 1123) Building on UBC's Okanagan campus.
Each year one case study school is chosen. During the two-day think tank, educators discuss the case school and the unique challenges faced by the school community. Educators also participate in a Design Challenge. This is a process where educators creatively identify problems, and then solutions, using design thinking, a philosophy supported by the ILC.
2019 marks the 6th annual Small Secondary Schools Think Tank.
