Latest posts / April 9, 2015

Le colloque J’aime l’école, c’est passionnant! explorera la passion au travail et la crĂ©ativitĂ©! OrganisĂ© par les Services Ă©ducatifs de la CSBE, le colloque se tiendra le 24 avril Ă  l’école secondaire Veilleux, Ă  Saint-Joseph-de-Beauce. Pour la confĂ©rence d’ouverture de cet Ă©vĂ©nement axĂ© sur la passion et la crĂ©ativitĂ©, qui de mieux que le confĂ©rencier Pierre Lavoie, qui est l’initiateur du Grand dĂ©fi Pierre Lavoie? Le colloque a Ă©tĂ© prĂ©parĂ© Ă  l’intention des enseignants et professionnels de la CSBE, pour qui il est gratuit.  Information et inscription https://se.csbe.qc.ca/colloque2015 Nous entrons dans une pĂ©riode de changements. Cette confĂ©rence met en Ă©veil l’importance de s’engager et de se responsabiliser face Ă  de nouveaux dĂ©fis qui sont parfois personnels, professionnels ou sociaux. Aucun de ces dĂ©fis ne pourra ĂŞtre relevĂ© sans la responsabilitĂ© et l’engagement de chacun. Il ne faut plus se demander ce que notre organisation, notre association, notre entreprise ou notre gouvernement peut faire pour nous, mais bien ce que JE peux faire pour elle.
