About this learning opportunity

It is virtually impossible for a teacher to know how to successfully provide instruction and support for all students in diverse, inclusive contemporary classrooms. In this introductory three webinar series, participants will learn about Collaborative Response, a mindset for educational organizations that values collaborative, action focused responses, data-informed discussions, and timely intervention to ensure all students can experience success. Come learn how school administration and inclusive learning support leadership teams establish school-wide structures to ensure support for every student in our schools and across our districts. Numerous Alberta school and district examples, as well as access to a myriad of resources will be provided.

These sessions are part of the year long series focused on growing and refining Collaborative Response structures and processes in schools and districts. Visit the 2020-2021 Collaborative Response Learning Series Overview to see all sessions available in this learning series.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
