What time are the workshops held at?
There are no times for the workshop. You can login from work or home at any time to work on the three modules over the three weeks. One module is released per week, so we encourage participants to complete each module on a weekly basis.
Do I need to install any software to access the workshop?
No, you do not need to install any software to access the workshop. You just need internet access on a computer, phone or tablet. We use Moodle, an Open Source Course Management System (CMS), also known as a Learning Management System (LMS) or a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Moodle is very similar to other online learning platforms such as D2L, Blackboard, and Drupal.
I am not a teacher; can I still take the workshop?
Yes. This workshop is best suited for certified Alberta school teachers, and post-secondary students training to be teachers in Alberta. Our workshop is specifically designed for teachers as they are best positioned to teach the human sexuality curriculum because of their on-going relationships with their students.
Teacher Professional Learning Sessions
Teaching Sexual Health staff are available to offer presentations on delivering comprehensive sexual health education at school or district-wide professional learning days.
Sessions are tailored to the needs of your school district, covering grades or topic areas of interest. For ideas on session topics, please see our past webinar offerings.
Sessions are offered online or in-person. Due to travel requirements, the availability of in-person sessions is limited depending on the location in Alberta. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to request a session.
NOTE: Teaching Sexual Health does NOT offer in-class teaching directly to students. We are here to develop your capacity as their classroom teacher, to deliver high-quality sexual health education to your students.
