Event Image
All CASS and ASBOA members are invited to participate in the annual province-wide Summer Learning Conference, scheduled for August 13 (evening) – 16, 2019 at the Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge. The Conference will provide an opportunity for in-depth learning based on “Professional Learning Modules” during a family-friendly event in beautiful Kananaskis Country.
 
Professional Learning Modules are designed to deepen and apply system leaders’ professional practice with opportunities to examine Alberta context through a community of inquiry approach based on research.  (Coherent with the SLQS professional practice and/or the ASBOA professional practice standards.) Learning modules begin with a focus on personal capacity leading to the valuable role system leaders play in supporting quality school leadership and teaching to create optimum learning for all students in Alberta.
 
While this professional learning design is separate from the Leadership Certification work, the Ministry and selected Post Secondaries Institutions are currently building, delegates will have the opportunity to complete the Superintendent Leadership Certification In-Service at the summer conference.  Attending the SLQS In-service will provide the certification required to hold a Chief Superintendent position in Alberta after September 1, 2019.
 
Professional Learning Modules that are being offered are:
  • Visionary Leadership
  • Supporting Effective Governance
  • Ethical Leadership in Education
  • Leading for Inclusion
  • Employment Law for HR Leaders in Education
as well as the SLQS Certification In-Service
