The competency poster released at the Learning Symposium by ARPDC was a huge hit. The wiki supporting curriculum redesign highlighting the cross-curricular competencies “one pagers” and poster are available at: This wiki space includes the adult facilitation processes we have been sharing so that instructional leaders can facilitate dialogue at their sites based on their context.

The ERLC “regional” blog has been designed for Districts' sharing of their professional learning, and the impact of that learning back at their site – or their own “next steps” following the learning opportunities. This blog supports the concept of a regional on line community of practice.

Program Delivery

Oversees the overall operation of the ERLC

On March 7, 2014, ERLC facilitated a workshop with the CASS Zone 2/3 members on “Support for Implementation: Realizing the Vision of Inspiring Education."
A variety of processes were used and shared to facilitate dialogue for district leaders to align initiatives and set the stage for Districts' implementation planning. The feedback from this meeting identified what superintendents saw as issues, questions and considerations. (see Google doc called “group response to activity). All workshop materials are available at: ERLC Wikispaces/Support for Implementation - Realizing the Vision of Inspiring Education

ERLC's Inclusive Education PD resources are available at: This site includes over 200 online learning opportunities that is being used to support job embedded and personalized learning in support of quality inclusive practices. This site will soon be renamed to “Inspiring all learners” as a result of the feedback from our District leaders and to support Inspiring Education.
