2017 Presentations

Below you will find some of the presentations that were given at last summer's 2017 "New to the NWT" Educators' Conference or N2NEC. Having as many presentations and documents shared during N2NEC 2017 then posted and made available for viewing, provides an opportunity for those who attended to revisit useful information. For those NWT new hires that were unable to attend the" New to the NWT" Educators' Conference August 15-17, 2017, this will be a place for you to return to multiple times to see what presentations and documents were shared at our 2017 event.

All three days of the "New to the NWT" Educators' Conference were expertly and lovingly moderated by Dr. Angela James, Director of Aboriginal Languages and Learning Secretariat, ECE.
