CEFPI Spring 2013 Conference: Exploring Personalized Learning

Plan on attending the CEFPI spring conference, “Exploring Personalized Learning”, taking place Thursday to Friday, April 25-26, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Vancouver Centre, 711 West Broadway, Vancouver. Take part in guided tours of Lord Kitchener Elementary, where a new school building has been connected to an existing heritage school; and University Hill Secondary, the site of the former U.B.C. National Research Council building which, through renovation and expansion, has been transformed into a new 800-student capacity school. Other conference highlights include keynote speaker Dr. Susan Rundle, who will discuss demographics, socioeconomic realities, shifting public policy, classroom diversity and many other of the countless factors to be considered when designing schools today. Combine this with the goals of improving education and increasing performance , and the result demands a reshaping of the classroom landscape – moving from teacher-centered classrooms to learning-centered spaces. There will also be an update from the British Columbia Ministry of Education. Program sessions include:

  • Personalized Learning: Cognitive Apprenticeship;
  • How Evidence-Based Design Can Help Improve Learning Environments;
  • Case Study – Energetic Learning Campus After Two Years, How Personalized Learning is Occurring; and
  • Case Study – Lessons Learning in Integrating Design with Personalized Learning in Vancouver’s New Schools
