Professional Development Opportunities

MSOT Speaker Series

We are pleased to announce the launch of our MSOT Speaker Series this April! The MSOT Speaker Series consists of regular professional development opportunities where presenters discuss topics relevant to occupational therapy practice in Manitoba.  

We are excited to announce that our first Speaker Series presenter is Lisa Tymchuk! Lisa is an occupational therapist working in the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) and will be discussing her work using Microsoft Learning Tools technology in the classroom to promote engagement in youth who present with differing learning needs. Lisa has been asked to present at previous Microsoft Events and her work was highlighted in the Microsoft commercial below.  Please join us April 13th at 6:00pm for our first speaker series event!
