 The Teaching Choices Symposium is an annual professional development conference attended by all University of Ottawa Bachelor of Education teacher candidates. It provides teacher candidates with a range of learning opportunities that supplement their university and practicum experiences. The inclusion of Nuttall's indigenous rhythm workshops on the tabla provided students with an example of a non-western system of education for teaching and learning rhythm in tomorrow's classrooms.
