Alberta’s Cross-Curricular Competencies to Support Learning for ALL Students

Over 130 participants attended an engaging and informative two day "Alberta’s Cross-Curricular Competencies to Support Learning for ALL Students" summer workshop on August 25 and 26 at the Fantasyland Hotel. Teacher leaders from across the ERLC region facilitated twelve dynamic  90 minute breakout sessions for the participants,  sharing their successes (and challenges) in implementing a cross–curricular competency focused approach.  The sessions were authentic and credible and very well received by the participants – teachers talking to teachers about what works!  Each breakout session included time for questions to the facilitator as well as sharing of resources.  

Day two of the workshop began with a dynamic and engaging panel discussion.  Panel members included Edmonton's Mayor Don Iveson;  Bill Campbell,  Director, Human Resources, Safeway; Judy Piercey, Managing Director, CBC Edmonton; and Dennis Simons, President and Manager of Intelligent Data Solutions Inc. The panel captivated the participants with their perspectives on how a competency focused approach supports learning for all students. Throughout the two days, time was set aside for self–reflection, networking and the opportunity to view newly developed ERLC online resources to support a cross–curricular competency focused approach.
