Great Teachers Seminar | Assiniboine Community College
Great Teachers Seminar

The Prairie Region Great Teachers Seminar is a three-day intensive seminar that provides an opportunity to learn about and reflect on the challenges faced by educators in post-secondary institutions. It is attended by educators from Assiniboine Community College, Red River College, University College of the North and the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST).

Offered annually in May at the Elkhorn Resort and Spa in beautiful Riding Mountain National Park, the format of this retreat is purposely unstructured, and evolves from an ongoing assessment of participant needs.

Participants learn from each other through discussion and exploration of teaching strategies, innovations, problems and solutions. The theme underlying all seminar activities is the perpetual challenge to identify the characteristics of the Great Teacher.

David Gottshall, who founded the original Great Teachers Seminars over 30 years ago, still directs this very successful learning opportunity, assisted by highly skilled educators and facilitators drawn from across North America.
