FSL Fundamentals: Strengthening our Community

Virtual Community-Building Events

The main goal of this virtual event series is to strengthen our community through participation in hands-on learning activities that will develop a sense of belonging to a network of French as an additional language teachers. Through a series of five sessions between fall 2023 and spring 2024, we will discover cultural elements specific to the French-speaking world. Each session will be interactive, allowing you to learn about a cultural theme through experiences. You will be able to transfer what you’ve learned to your classroom or simply take advantage of these moments to relax.

We work so hard to meet our students’ needs that we sometimes forget to consider our own emotional needs. Take some time to have fun while making connections, speaking French, and developing your intercultural skills in a relaxed environment.

Session 2: Discovering Museums Through Virtual Tours

In this session, we will discover a range of free virtual tours offered by museums around the Francophone world. We will explore the perspectives of historians who present important cultural, artistic, historical, or scientific objects by visiting their collections in French. This opportunity to delve into the world of the arts will help us teach, inspire, and connect communities. Be prepared to share what you learn and what you think about the artefacts you discover!
