Canadian Council on Learning (CCL)
Interactive Information Session on the Composite Learning Index - January 18, 2006
Learning is key to our success as a country, yet it has not been the focus of national attention in recent years. CCL is developing a Composite Learning Index (CLI) to measure the state of learning in Canada.
The CLI will provide a regular “snapshot” of the state of learning in Canada using an innovative approach that is both accessible and informative. CCL is hosting an interactive information session on January 18, 2006, to present the framework of the CLI. Invitations (.doc) are being sent to key stakeholders in the field of learning throughout Canada. The actual index will be released in spring 2006.
CCL is inviting key stakeholders in the field of learning to participate in an interactive information session on the Composite Learning Index, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., on January 18, 2006, at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa.
"During this session, we will present the framework for the index," says Marc Lachance, Associate Director, Monitoring and Reporting at CCL, who is responsible for designing Canada’s first-ever composite learning index. "We hope that it will spark a vigorous dialogue on the state of learning in Canada."
For those interested but unable to attend in person, a dial-in option is being offered for the presentation portion of the information session.
If you wish to participate, please complete the registration form available on CCL’s website and return it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to (613) 782-2956 by January 11, 2006. Please clearly indicate whether you intend to attend in person or by phone. For more information about the event, contact Sheena Powell at (613) 786-3230, ext. 217.
