The Shared Learning Committee would like to welcome everyone to Abbotsford School District’s annual Shared Learning Conference held on Friday, February 19th, 2016.
This year, the Shared Learning Conference will offer workshops at both Abbotsford Senior Secondary and Abbotsford Middle School. The keynote address will be held in the Abby Arts Theater at 8:30 am with Garfield Gini Newman’s presentation “Creating a Thinking Classroom for the 21st Century”.
Mr. Gini Newman is also a presenter in the following sessions: A09: Approaches for Engaging 21st Century Learners and B06: Using Assessment to Nurture Critically Thoughtful Learners.
For the first time this year we will be offering a limited number of workshops at the same time as the keynote speaker. This change is to allow conference goers flexibility to make this day meaningful for their individual professional growth needs. Following the keynote address, attendees will be able to attend workshops offered at both schools. For a full description of workshops provided, please check out the “Workshop Descriptions” tab above. Once you have selected the workshops that interest you, please use the registration tab to register for your 8:30am,10:45am and 1:00pm selections. Please note that workshops do fill up quickly so don’t delay to register as registration is on a first come, first served basis.
For an overview of the days events, please check out the shape of the day. We would also like to encourage attendees to carpool as parking will be at a premium on conference day. Please check out the Parking tab for more information.
Finally, we look forward to seeing you at the conference and hope that the keynote and workshops offered truly engage both your heart and mind.
