How to make the best use of ERLC

ATA Greater Black Gold
Teachers Local No. 8 Institute Day
Fort McMurray 2012 planning team and facilitators

As the ERLC mission is Partners in adult learning for students' sake, we strive to develop collaborative opportunities for the entire region. Three recent examples:

  • ATA Greater Black Gold Teachers Local No. 8 institute day is organized by volunteer teacher leaders from both Black Gold and St. Thomas Aquinas districts. This year we had the opportunity to partner with the ATA institute planning committee. As requested by the committee over 20 full day sessions were offered, most subsidized as a result of grants from Alberta Education to support implementation. (see learning opportunity archives from November 1st http://www.erlc.ca/programs/archive.php#2011-11)
  • Fort McMurray Public and Catholic school authorities host a joint learning day
    As requested by the districts ERLC has supported the organization of this event for the last 4 years.  This year approximately 20 full day sessions were  offered on January 27th for the 500 teachers from  both districts. As well as resources that both districts contribute, all sessions are subsidized as a result of grant from Alberta Education to support implementation.
  • Career and Technology Studies: Success through Collaboration CTS/STC, models a collaborative venture initiated at an ERLC advisory committee meeting. Edmonton Public and Edmonton Catholic schools initiated this day of learning and involved ERLC in supporting logistics and coordination.  As a result of this partnership the entire region can access this learning opportunity.
