Vancouver Island University in collaboration with local school districts on the island and in Powell River are excited to offer a professional development day option for K-12 educators and for educators from Vancouver Island University and North Island College.

This day is about learning together to build a more seamless learning experience for students as they move from elementary and secondary education to post-secondary experiences. It is a day of dialogue and discussion about the issues that matter for successful student learning.

Topics may include assessment, admissions into post-secondary, portfolio learning, impact of new 10-12 curriculum on high schools and first year university classes, core competencies and alignment with post-secondary graduate attributes, career connections curriculum and capstone projects etc.

This day is to allow educators from both sectors to have time and space to learn from each other, share experiences and uncover topics that need further exploration to ensure optimal success for all of our students. The break-out groups will allow two choices in topics for active participation.
