Brown, Sherri; Hales, Anne; Kuehn, Larry; Steffensen, Karen
Learning Forward
Coinciding with the 2016 Annual Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Learning Forward commissioned and supported a study of professional learning across the nation of Canada entitled "The State of Educators' Professional Learning in Canada." A research team led by Carol Campbell, Associate Professor of Leadership and Educational Change at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto, examined the professional learning that educators experience in the provinces and territories of Canada. The study identifies key components and features of effective professional learning and highlights findings from what educators in the nation experience. Included among the reports and papers resulting from the study, is this document, "The State of Educators' Professional Learning in British Columbia: Executive Summary." To learn more about the state of professional learning in British Columbia, several education organizations formed the British Columbia Education Collaborative, whose members include the Association of BC Deans of Education, BC Association of School Business Officials, British Columbia Principals' and Vice-Principals' Association, British Columbia Teachers' Federation, British Columbia School Superintendents Association, British Columbia School Trustees Association, the Federation of Independent School Associations in British Columbia, Learning Forward British Columbia, and the British Columbia Ministry of Education. These organizations worked collaboratively to construct a comprehensive overview and analysis of British Columbia's education system and the state of professional learning in the province. This executive summary offers an overview of this analysis and raises questions for further exploration and consideration. [The complete case study document, "The State of Educators' Professional Learning in British Columbia," is scheduled for publication in January 2017.]
