Professional Learning Modules
Professional Learning Modules are designed to enhance system leaders’ professional growth and practice based on a focus on one competency. The value in the learning is based on coming together with your colleagues to discuss practice based on context and current research. ( CASS/ASBOA Summer Conference) Learning modules begin with a focus on personal leadership capacities that are essential to the role system leaders play in ensuring optimum learning for all students in Alberta. The conference provides an opportunity for inquiry into problems of practice, current research and reflection on practice and plan for growth.
The initial facilitation of professional learning modules was in August 2018 at the CASS/ASBOA conference. 5 modules, based on SLQS competencies and role of superintendents and system leaders, were offered with the participant guide and facilitator slides available at this site.
The 2019 CASS/ASBOA Summer conference will continue to offer the professional learning module approach. Consideration for offering the current professional learning modules as well as newly created modules focused on Inclusion, Human Resources, Operations and Finance and Legal Issues will be explored.
