How Competency Development Can Support Meaningful and Engaging Experiences for K&E Learners
Presented by: Krystal Abrahamowicz
Located at: FFCA - Learning Centre
110 - 7000 Railway St. SE, Calgary, AB
About the Session


Alberta Education promotes the development of 8 student competencies, including:

  • problem solving
  • personal growth and well-being
  • cultural and global citizenship
  • creativity and innovation
  • critical thinking
  • collaboration
  • communication
  • managing information

K&E students, in particular, benefit from learning opportunities framed through competency development.  When the development of competencies happens through learning experiences in the school setting, students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets they will need to successfully navigate their personal journeys in living, learning and working. In this session we will learn how to use student competency development as a pathway to create engaging and meaningful learning that your students won’t want to miss!
