A Learning Alberta: Dialogue and Direction. Regional Discussions Summary
Alberta Advanced Education
"A Learning Alberta: Framing the Challenge" is a comprehensive review of the advanced education system in Alberta. The review brought together thousands of Albertans to talk about and seek answers to the challenges of creating a knowledge-based province. In particular, Albertans were encouraged to comment on a proposed policy framework that will help guide the future of advanced education in Alberta. This report provides a summary of input from all Regional Consultation Sessions. Participants in the regional sessions were provided with an Information Package for Discussion, which included the proposed policy framework, "A Learning Alberta," and asked them to respond to specific questions about each section. Discussions were wide-ranging and clearly reflected the key factors/characteristics presented in the policy framework and the results from Stakeholder Roundtables in January and February 2005, in which institutional leaders, community-based educators, literacy groups, Aboriginal community leaders, business, industry and apprenticeship and industry training stakeholders were invited to present their views on where advanced education in Alberta should be in 20 years. To avoid repetition of those key factors, this report presents feedback specific to the questions about the proposed policy framework that were asked in the regional sessions.
