Campus Alberta--A Policy Framework.
Alberta Learning, Edmonton.
This document reports that Campus Alberta is emerging as a key framework under which Albertans will be able to pursue and achieve their lifelong learning goals. Campus Alberta is neither a program nor an institution, but rather a concept, a set of principles and a way in which the learning system works to deliver seamless learning opportunities for Albertans. In this new concept, both formal and informal learning activities are recognized. The focus extends beyond individuals of "traditional" education age to include people of all ages. Through Campus Alberta, the learning system is: (1) learner-centered; (2) collaborative; (3) accessible; (4) innovative; and (5) responsive. The objectives of Campus Alberta are to eliminate barriers in learning and to foster lifelong participation in learning by increasing learners' ease of entry into and movement within the learning system, by creating more flexible learning opportunities, and by ensuring that learners have the tools they need to succeed in learning. Goals are to ensure that Albertans are members of a province-wide learning opportunity and that they have the necessary skills and supports to participate in and benefit from learning. An appendix describes some examples of learning system collaboratives. (SLD)
