To support your professional learning as a teacher, a one-year membership to a professional growth network of your choice is included in your Federation membership. PGNs connect members with other teachers and professionals who share similar education and learning interests. STF members on a contract are encouraged to explore the PGN section of the Federation website to select a PGN…. Federation members can join more than one PGN; however, you are required to pay for any additional memberships outside of this offer. Please be advised that your PGN membership does not cover costs for attending PGN conferences and workshops.Visit the PGN section of the STF website. Log in to MySTF to see what’s available, to hear from other PGN members and to make your selection. All PGN memberships will expire September 15, 2022. If you need assistance, please email stf@stf.sk.ca or call us toll-free at 1-800-667-7762.

A big thank you to the University of Saskatchewan  & Jim Cummins for the presentation on translanguaging, using one’s full language repertoire for learning, which was held online on June 3, 2021. 

The College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan has assembled a web page that includes all of The University of Saskatchewan College of Education Dr. Cummins’ handouts and the video recording. It is available here: https://education.usask.ca/news/2021/english-as-an-additional-language-webinar.php
