The SRL Consortium of Canada, UBC’s Faculty of Education, and the Institute for Early Childhood Education & Research (IECER) extend sincerest thanks to those who attended the day of dialogue on June 21, 2013.

Read the story.

Keep the conversation going. Help set an agenda for understanding and applying SRL through research, practice and policy.

The Faculty of Education and the SRLCanada Consortium invite you to a day of dialogue with local and world-renowned experts:

  • Build awareness about SRL.
  • Learn how SRL theory and research are being translated to policy and practice in BC’s schools.
  • Dialogue with researchers and Ministry representatives.

This day of presentations, networking and follow-up opportunities will interest:

  • professional development and curriculum leaders,
  • teachers, and
  • researchers.

Come and explore ideas associated with self-regulation and SRL, which are catching hold in BC’s schools:

  1. What is self-regulation?
  2. What is its research base?
  3. Why is it important at all grade levels?
  4. How can we support it in our schools/classrooms?
  5. What are some models for teacher-researcher collaboration for fostering SRL in K-12 classrooms?
