Apply to Present a Workshop

The FNSA invites applications for conference workshops showcasing practices that will enrich First Nations schools and support student learning.  Our goal is to offer a wide range of workshops for educators, administrators, and other school support staff.

A variety of topics are eligible, including but not limited to: First Nations languages and culture; literacy and numeracy instruction; classroom management; parent and community engagement; assessment strategies; new approaches to student learning; First Peoples curriculum; extra-curricular activities; successful governance/school relationships; applied design skills and technologies and land-based learning.  Workshop presentations related to promising practices to support virtual and remote learning during COVID-19 are strongly encouraged.

Workshop presenters are asked to consider how the conference theme, Power of the Past – Force of the Future, can be integrated into their presentation.

Applications from First Nations schools and communities are strongly encouraged.  The FNSA is happy to offer technical support and to discuss your workshop plan in advance.  Recommendations for workshop topics and speakers are also welcome.


  • All workshops will be offered on April 16th, through Zoom.
  • Workshops are 1 hour, possibly presented more than once.
  • Product/sales-focused proposals are ineligible.
