Recently I had the opportunity to spend some time in rural communities in Canada, America and Britain. The intention of the workshop is to share snippets ofthese experiences of rural schools, rural communities and rural educators. The session will introduce participants to schools, regional institutions and community education opportunities in various rural and isolated settings. There will be opportunity to compare, contrast and celebrate.
