Inclusive Education Symposium

Building Classrooms and School Communities that Support all Learners: Building Blocks for Success

For this year’s MRU Inclusive Education Symposium, we are pleased to partner with the Calgary City Teachers Convention (CCTC) to offer three virtual sessions that give teachers and school leaders the opportunity to explore building effective inclusive learning environments in the classroom and school communities. We are very excited to virtually host Dr. Carol Ann Tomlinson as our keynote speaker. Dr. Tomlinson’s world-renowned work on differentiation is foundational to building an inclusive classroom. We are also offering two spotlight sessions. Spotlight Session I includes a panel of educational professionals who will share their stories of successes and challenges in creating inclusive classrooms and school communities. Spotlight Session II explores the topic of mental toughness and how we, as educators, can build resilience for ourselves and for our students.

Thank you to all of our presenters and attendees for attending this year's event and for supporting Inclusive Education.
