The NRTEA is an event for those teaching preservice, concurrent, and continuing teacher education in Canada. The shape of ROUNDTABLE 2018 is nearing its final form as we glide toward Thursday, May 17 and Friday, May 18 at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.  The theme this year will revolve around 3 interwoven threads: nourishing our personal spirits; enriching essential components of our TEA programs; finding deeper communion between us all.

Our host this year will be the National Arts Centre and we are supported by the international award winning community arts education organization MASC (Multicultural Arts in Schools and Communities).

The following are some of the current shades of experience and dialogue inherent to this year's ROUNDTABLE:
-       An ongoing multi-arts (dance, drama, music, visual arts) creative experience that will evolve in collaborative spontaneity during our entire time together.
-       Opportunities for collaborative dialogue on all aspects of our developing threads of personal nourishment, program enrichment and building community
-       Presentations by national visionaries in TEA.
-       An experience of collective imagination and creativity in creating aesthetic meaning together.

More specific details on all aspects of ROUNDTABLE 2018 will revealed to all shortly.  We expect registration to be open by March 15, 2018.
In the meantime, please pass on this notice to any other interested colleagues or groups and check out our NRTEA web-site at
