Family Studies - Leading Fashion and Food Labs (virtual workshops)
One of the most fun and rewarding aspects to teaching Nutrition and Fashion courses is the hands-on component. Fostering students' skill development while keeping them as safe as possible is a challenge that we want to prepare you for. To this end, OFSHEEA wants to share an upcoming opportunity for professional development created for teachers new to family studies (or for those just looking for a refresher).
OFSHEEA will be offering 2 different virtual workshops, one on how to run Food Labs and another on Fashion Labs. The dates and times are as follows:
Fashion Lab Workshop - Tuesday August 24, 2021 1 - 4pm
Food Lab Workshop - Thursday August 26, 2021 1 - 4pm
These workshops will be done online through Zoom with the support of family studies teacher experts. At the end of the session you will get a certificate stating you have completed the workshop for your resume/CV/teaching portfolio.
The focus of the workshops will be on experiential learning opportunities in the Family Studies classroom. Practical instruction will be provided about running food and fashion labs in secondary schools. The goal of the workshop is to provide you with real life practical applications in the Family Studies classroom. You will learn how to provide a safe and inclusive classroom experiences for secondary students and about budgeting, classroom management, safety, and supporting needs of all students (i.e. special education, ESL). You will be provided with classroom ready resources to support you in your teaching. NOTE: For those who attended the Food and Fashion Lab Workshop in February 2021, these workshops will be similar.
There will be no cost to attend the workshop for members of OFSHEEA. For those who are not members, the cost will be $20 per workshop. Payment for the workshop(s) can be made via e-transfer to
