Join a number of our presenters and keynotes for a summary and closing session addressing symposium themes, discussions, and issues identified throughout the event (more names to be added!).

Ask your own questions of the panel.  Add your questions/comments to the shared Google doc here:

As the discussion throughout the symposium unfolds we anticipate a number of questions to surface including:
  1. What directions are beginning to emerge for new learning approaches in BC in support of the implementation of new curriculum?
  2. What supports, including policy and funding, are required at the school, district, and provincial levels to implement these changes?
  3. What resources, training, and technologies are needed to support teachers to make the required changes for new curriculum and learning models?
  4. As changes progress, how can we be certain that we are meeting the needs of all students (special needs, aboriginal, adult learners, etc.)?
  5. Finally, what is the "Call to Action” required of teachers, administrators, and government?
