Elementary Mathematics Professional Learning

This graphic illustrates the core goals this project aims to provide.

Alberta K-6 teachers are invited to participate in learning opportunities to enhance their confidence
and fluency in the teaching of mathematics.

Beginning in November 2015, a series of instructional and collaborative professional learning experiences will be offered through provincial webinars, regional opportunities, and a variety of technology-mediated resources.

These experiences are designed to enhance:

  • Teacher understanding of mathematical content and conceptual relationships
  • Formative and summative assessment practice
  • Teacher-parent communication

Provincial Learning Opportunities and resources, supported by Regional Consortia and our Educational Partners will be available both synchronously and asynchronously for teacher access. More information: http://www.erlc.ca/documents/elementary_mathamatics_professional_learning_2015-08-05.pdf
