The UBC Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa will convene on
Wednesday, November 26
to visit with colleagues and discuss
“Building Community in a Time of Change”
led by three engaging panelists….
Chris Kennedy, Superintendent of West Vancouver Schools
Dr. Blye Frank, Dean of the Faculty Education at UBC
Kit Krieger, Executive Director of the BC Principals’ and Vice-Principals’ Association
The context of education is undergoing many complex changes. For example, technological advances, population movements and new educational designs all require us to know where are we now, where are we going and how do we get there together?
Our three outstanding panelists are well suited to help us move forward as they have considerable experience with change. Chris Kennedy has spearheaded the informed use of technology in schools. Blye Frank has guided the revitalization of teaching methods in the medical profession. Kit Krieger has presented self-regulatory reforms for teacher professionalism. Each panelist has met challenges and found ways to build community to result in learning.
