Beyond Our Classroom is a network of 540 educators who have a passion for finding, planning and running creative professional learning experiences and workshops for educators. We list and promote learning experiences offered by archives, art galleries, clubs, community groups. conservation areas, museums, outdoor centres, provincial parks, school boards, subject associations and teacher affiliates.

For experiences and workshops that Beyond Our Classroom members organize we arrange for speakers and tours led by a professional in specific industries and communities such as art galleries, broadcasting, film making, First Nation communities, legal services, museums, police services, recording arts, recreation, science, technology and tourism. Where possible, sponsors are sought to cover transportation, workshop materials and meals.

We seek out and plan educational field trips and workshops that will:

  • a) help educators better understand and deliver curriculum.
  • b) help educators better understand industries related to subjects and curriculum they teach.
  • c) help educators have new experiences and challenges that will inspire their approach to teaching.
  • d) connect educators in Ontario with each other.
  • e) be fun and social.
