About PD Resources

Professional Development Resources are intended to support opportunities to "continue the conversation" with respect to various selected learning opportunities. Most often PD resources are archived webinars with conversation guides or professional development/workshop resources intended for leaders to facilitate district/job embedded learning opportunities.

PD resources can include facilitator guides, participant handouts, and/or facilitator resources and are intended to be adaptable to your context. All materials on the site are aligned with the Alberta programs of studies, were developed by Alberta educators and are intended to support implementation.

PD resources can also support individual self motivated learners who wish to continue their learning Any Time, Any Place, at Any Pace.

What types of resources are available?

Webinar Resource

Webinars
A webinar is a web-based presentation or workshop that is transmitted over the internet. After a webinar is presented live it will be recorded and archived for access by all.  Many archived webinars include a "conversation guide" that are intended for PD leaders to facilitate ongoing conversations.

Video Resource

Videos
Advisory committee members have guided ERLC into video production!  The request to see/hear implementation in action is the intent of the videos on the site at this time. Most videos represent promising practices and include "conversation guides" for continued conversation at your site.
