Teacher Workshops

These free webinar and in-person programs offer the tools you need to teach economics in your online, in-person or hybrid classroom.

Each webinar program is hosted over a series of short modules, while our in-person programs take place over the course of one day. These teacher workshop programs are developed and presented by economic experts, offering teachers the opportunity to actively participate in interactive sessions, as well as take home a wealth of resources, including detailed lesson plans, activity outlines and readings.

These programs are catered to a Canadian high school level curriculum and include concepts that range from basic to advanced.

For a list of our current lesson plan descriptions, please review our Lesson Plan Catalogue. If you are interested in a lesson plan set but it is not currently offered as a teacher workshop, please contact us for more information.
