The OBEA Fall Conference was held this past Saturday in Burlington. I am always impressed by the amount of time, energy and talent teachers are willing to give to the workshops they present. Thank you to the OBEA members who supported the conference by attending, as well as a big thank you, as always, to our corporate sponsors and vendors who attended on Saturday.
We are less than one month away from meeting to plan the spring conference. I know you have many great things you can share with your colleagues. Present a workshop at our spring conference! Remember, if you present a workshop, one-day of the conference is free. So many of you are doing wonderful work in your business classrooms, please share your lessons and resources with others. Submit a Workshop.
We don't want to forget about the Specialist High Skills Major. If you are running a SHSM in Business, please share what you are doing with others. The SHSM related workshops at last spring’s OBEA conference were very popular so think about this as another option for a workshop.
So many business departments throughout Ontario have teachers teaching in different subject areas. Our OBEA conferences are a great way to gain resources for all business subjects. Business teachers enjoy sharing their expertise with others. For new tools and resources for teaching business, start following OBEA on Twitter. I am going to start posting one or two resources a week for the next month at least, so if I am sharing, I would like you to share too. Don't forget to put the hashtag in @OnBusEducators and the specific subject it pertains to if applicable - e.g. #BTT. Do you have a website? Post it on Twitter and let all of us see what you are doing.
This site has been designed to give basic information about the Ontario Business Educators' Association. Our organization has been serving the needs of business students and teachers since 1895. Some of our activities are outlined in the links to the left. Others, such as our many resources for the classroom teacher, are available on the dynamic members' site. For more information feel free to contact any of the current executive members, located in the Contact Us section.
