2012 Conference Theme
We often describe education as a transformative process from which a person emerges with new attitudes and beliefs. But how are we to promote and support this transformative process? We can think of education as a symbiotic relationship where pedagogical lines intertwine, and, as leading gives way to supporting, learning becomes mutual. We can feel the presence of this type of education whenever collaborative experiences come into being. Through collaboration, we allow different perspectives to coexist.
A respect for difference gives rise to unforeseen ways of understanding, which all can witness and collaboratively hold. It is in this context that we invite you to join us and partake in a celebration of collaborative learning.
