A two-day national research conference designed to engage 300 participants from across Canada in examining and sharing promising practices in K-12 aboriginal education.

The program will feature over 60 workshops and presentations by prominent experts and practitioners from band and provincial/territorial operated schools. The mix of inspirational plenary sessions, panels, interactive roundtable forums, and practical workshops will provide something for everyone. The conference will showcase 20 band and provincially operated schools from the Sharing our Success research series: Ten Case Studies in Aboriginal Schooling (Bell, 2004) and More Case Studies in Aboriginal Schooling (Fulford, 2007). Don't miss this exchange of field-based Canadian research, policies, strategies and resources, and the opportunity to forge new networks to share best practice in aboriginal education.

Policy makers and those responsible for administration, supervision, professional development and improvement planning in aboriginal schools will find this program relevant.
