About this Learning Opportunity

AISCA's "Better Together!" Teachers' conference has quickly become an annual highlight on the PD calendar.  We owe much of this success to the many educators and leaders who have stepped up to lead engaging and informative workshops.  This year our theme is "Better, Together:  Bulding Resilience", and the conference will be taking on an exciting new format with multiple locations!  We will be hosting in-person conferences in Calgary and Edmonton, and an on-line option will be available as well.  Please select the venue that works best for you!
