Alberta Education
The Setting the Direction Minister's Forum was held June 8 and 9, 2009 at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton. It was attended by 820 Albertans and another 288 people participated through interactive webcasts at 78 sites across the province. The purpose of the forum was to present the Framework and engage a broad range of stakeholders in meaningful discussion to foster a common understanding of the Framework. The two-day forum included plenary sessions, to establish a common foundation for participation, and breakout sessions, which offered participants an opportunity to actively review the Framework and provide advice on implementation. The purpose of this report is to provide a summary of input received from participants in the Minister's Forum. The Forum was well-attended and well-received by the majority of participants. Three appendices are included: (1) Consultation Methods; (2) Forum Participant Evaluation; and (3) Moderator's Summary (End of Day 2). (Contains 4 figures.)
