The Banff Centre brings it all together – first class meeting and accommodation facilities and beautiful scenery – to create the perfect setting for the inspirational learning experience that has become the hallmark of the Great Teachers Seminar.

All sessions take place in the state-of-the-art Kinnear Centre for Creativity & Innovation. Meals are covered by your course fee and take place in the stunning Dining Centre. There, conversations from the day’s sessions carry over and nearly make you forget the stunning view of the mountains all around you.  The daily sessions are intensive and you need to attend them all, but there is also ample opportunity to explore what else Banff has to offer.
