“The concept behind Active Learning is to create an environment that is easily accessible to all children, no matter what their challenges.”
January 20, 2021 – It was an absolute pleasure to have Mimi Pruniski and Pat Jung on CMV Live to talk all about Active Learning! This is just a small taste of the whole presentation they have in store for the CMV Public Health and Policy Conference, which is scheduled for August 30 – September 1, 2021 in Ottawa, Ontario. We hope to see you all in our nation’s capital this summer!
