Alberta, Curriculum & Finland

Today, I'm in Edmonton for the Alberta Teachers' Association and Alberta Education's Invitational Curriculum Symposium.

I see this as an opportunity to continue the ATA's collaboration with the Alberta Government while furthering our partnership with Finland as we rethink curriculum in Alberta. I'm excited to hear from Irmeli Halinen, head of curriculum development in the Finnish National Board of Education and Pasi Sahlberg, whose new book Finnish Lessons is making its release. Dennis Shirley from Boston College and Joan Engel from Alberta Education will also be joining us.

As the day progresses, I will be sure to blog more about what I've learned and experienced.
