Feedback form is now closed.
When a former School District Supertintendent, one-time CEO of the BC Public School Employers’ Association and a former teacher union researcher met to reflect on dialogue in public education systems, the result was a series of public symposia to find better ways of discussing contentious issues in education. Symposia attendees have included current Superintendents and district staff, teacher union officers, Principals, and teachers.
This session will share some of the concepts, processes, skill development and emerging ‘toolkit’ to enable better dialogue.
