Assessment for Leaning Drive-In
The annual CAfLN conference and symposium was held in Nanaimo in the spring of 2015. At that event a desire to continue to meet face-to-face regionally was expressed. On June 1st, 2015, an incredible group of approximately 45 mid Vancouver Island educators gathered in School District 69 to continue the AfL conversations that started at the CAfLN conference. The group was comprised of: student teachers, primary, intermediate, middle and high school teachers, counselors, learning services teachers, school and district based administration, Vancouver Island University staff and represented 4 school districts and VIU. Each person or team brought a resource, question and/or artifact; the group was welcomed and the networking began. Our gathering ended with participants being asked to provide feedback for future gatherings and the overwhelming response was the desire to have opportunities for ongoing conversation – both digitally and face-to-face.
School District 68 will be hosting the next face-to-face opportunity on Monday, Oct. 28, 2015. Please also follow the #CAfLNework and #noiiaesn Twitter hashtags. A Facebook page for the regional group is also being established.
