I just received an email to say that the York Education Job Fair has been canceled due to a strike on campus. York University Teachers should apply to teaching jobs with Classroom Canada now if they want to be interviewed in person.
I had planned to be at York on the 8th of January to meet the new teachers & discuss teaching in London, but we'll have to find another way. I'm at OISE (U of T) this Friday (December 12th) and will be conducting interviews all day Saturday in Toronto. Most of those interview spots have been taken, but if you apply now, I might be able to fit you in or interview you Sunday morning.
York may reschedule the job fair for the end of January or early February, but to be safe you should still just apply now. I have a few brilliant teachers from York who are teaching in London with us now, so it really is a shame that the strike is lasting this long. To read an interview with a York teacher just click here.
We also planned a book launch at York for the Guide to Teaching in London: A Survival Guide for Canadians for January 6th. This may have to be canceled as well. I'll keep you posted through this blog, so watch this space.
To see what other cities & universities we are visiting, please see this blog post. We've also decided to add 2 more universities: Trent (Jan. 12th) and Western (Jan. 16th). If you don't see your area on the list, please apply anyway.
