A Learning Alberta: Dialogue and Direction. The Forum Background
Alberta Advanced Education
Participants in "A Learning Alberta--Dialogue and Direction," the Minister's Forum on Advanced Learning are an important part of a process that has been underway across Alberta since January of 2005. Led by the Honourable Dave Hancock, Minister of Advanced Education, a new vision and policy framework is being developed to guide future directions in advanced learning for Alberta. They represent the many diverse voices bringing their perspectives to this task. This vision and framework will reshape the way one thinks about, deliver and set policy for advanced learning for the generations ahead. Alberta must sustain a globally competitive economy for the future--an economy that adds value across its traditional resource sectors, as well as new and emerging sectors such as life sciences, nanotechnology, environmental and information technologies and value-added manufacturing. At the same time, Alberta must support learning in the arts and humanities to foster the creativity that drives truly innovative societies. The key to this future is a robust, knowledge-based economy, spurred by Albertans with a desire to learn and adapt throughout their lives. It is people and their ideas, creativity, knowledge and wisdom that will advance this province into the 21st century. Alberta's Advanced Learning System Today is appended.
