Over 125 staff members gathered on October 22, 2014 at the Muskoka Education Centre to hear George Couros speak about innovative student learning and engagement tactics. This workshop focused on how to create optimal learning environments for innovation in schools.

Couros has worked from K-12 as a teacher, technology facilitator, and school based administrator. He also co-facilitates Great Leaders, Great Teams, Great Results leadership training and is a leader on the effective use of social media to improve social learning.
