Presented by the Centre for Family Literacy, and supported by the Alberta Government, we were pleased to bring you the annual Training Institute.
The focus of the Training Institute was certificate training for family literacy program staff. We tried to offer both standard models and advanced training so practitioners could fill their schedules during the week with a combination of required trainings.
Here’s a look at the Training Institute At-a-Glance:

Literacy and Learning Symposium
Presented by the Centre for Family Literacy, co-hosted with the Community Learning Network, and supported by the Alberta Government, we were pleased to bring you the annual Literacy & Learning Symposium up to and including 2016. This annual province-wide professional development symposium focused on literacy and foundational learning for adults.
Our keynotes included two excellent speakers: Dr. Stephen Reder, Professor Emeritus of Applied Linguistics at Portland State University and an internationally prominent researcher in the fields of adult literacy, digital literacy and second language acquisition along with Tracy Defoe, adult education specialist, sometimes CALP instructor and curious practitioner.
The Literacy & learning Symposium was coordinated with the intent to meet the provincial professional development needs of Community Adult Learning Program (CALP) staff with a range of learning opportunities for new to experienced practitioners.
Each year the Symposium Planning Committee oversees the planning of the Symposium from beginning to end and is responsible for development of the extensive program. Thank you to the Symposium Planning Committee members:
