AAC Virtual Sessions - Open to all educators!

AAC understands that in the upcoming school year teachers will need professional learning opportunities that are:

  • based on the emerging issues facing teachers in the current Alberta context
  • accessible at a time when teachers are ready for learning
  • affordable, hassle-free, and of the highest quality 

This fall, AAC will be offering several open sessions designed to support busy teachers as they navigate teaching during a pandemic. Make sure you check out this page frequently as new sessions will be posted as soon as they are designed. If you know of a topic that would immediately meet your teaching needs in the assessment area, don’t hesitate to email info@aac.ab.ca

 

 

Keep in mind our AAC member jurisdictions have funded these open sessions; therefore, there is a slight difference in pricing for members and non-members.  Want to know if your school authority is a member?  Check out the membership list here.

Assessment 911: Help! Digital Reporting Is Really Stressing Me Out!

Is setting up your grade book REALLY stressing you out?  Does having a live parent portal cause you anxiety? Then this session is for you!  We’ll provide answers to:

  • What marks should I have in my grade book?

  • How many marks should I enter?

  • How can I organize them?

  • Should formative marks even be recorded?

  • What should I say to my student’s parents to explain what I’m doing?

This session will provide practical solutions for the complex assessment challenges, regardless of the reporting format. It turns out that you don’t have to sacrifice good formative assessment practices because you have a digital reporting system!
