CAfLN MISSION

FOUNDING MEMBERS

Started by Damian CooperKen O’Connor, & Lorna Earl, the Canadian Assessment for Learning Network (CAfLN) is a member-led, non-profit organization that connects people across Canada who are interested in the use of assessment for learning and the development of related policies and research in education.

CAfLN emerged from conversations among Damian, Lorna, and Ken about the value and need for a pan-Canadian conversation about AfL – what it means, how it is implemented and what difference it is making in teaching and learning. As founding members, and first board of directors, they welcome input and support from all teachers, leaders and researchers who are interested in establishing and sustaining AfL in Canada.
