Vancouver – October 5, 2013

Hosted By:

Robin Tierney, assisstant Professor, UBC

Attendance:

8 CAfLN Members

Details:

On Oct 4 & 5, the University of British Columbia hosted the BC Assessment Forum, which was a session designed to generate dialogue and offer ‘action items’ to the BC Ministry of Education as it engages in a transformation of curriculum and assessment to meet the needs of  the ‘21st Century Learner’. The addition of 8 CAfLN members offered us an opportunity to advocate for a focus on formative assessment among the conversations around revisions to large-scale standardized testing systems in BC and offered us an opportunity for the first Vancouver Pop-Up meeting! We gathered at Rogue for dinner and drinks and great conversation was enjoyed by all.  We have already decided that a next step will be to convene in larger numbers adjacent to teh BCSSA Fall Conference on November 22nd, which is featuring Dylan William as a keynote.  BC is on a roll.
