Engaging All Learners!

Inclusion in the Early Years: Promising Practices Provincial Symposium (January 20, 2012)

This symposium brought early childhood professionals together from across the province for a day of collaboration and inquiry around inclusion and early learning. This learning opportunity provided an opportunity to hear leading academics in neuroscience and education alongside professionals in early learning. A panel of experts connected research and promising practices from across Alberta to demonstrate a diverse range of possibilities for inclusive practices to enhance learning of all children. These archived materials from the event provide access to the learning. This conversation guide provides opportunities for reflection, self directed learning or ideas for dialogue with colleagues after viewing the videos.
