Description:

Beginning in 2018, students transitioning from high school to post-secondary institutions will have different experiences and expectations than their predecessors due to the significant redesign of British Columbia's K-12 curriculum. This will impact KPU in terms of students' experiences and expectations. 

All KPU faculty and staff are invited to participate in this interactive and hands-on session as part of Reading Week's Professional Development offerings. Join various speakers and facilitators, including Jan Unwin, Superintendent of Graduation and Student Transitions at Ministry of Education and Ministry of Advanced Education, School District Teachers and Superintendents, at innovative KPU faculty at this event for demonstrations, table talks, and innovative practice discussions.
