In 2011, the first edition of the Symposium on the transfer of learning in education brought together some 100 stakeholders in education.
This year, for its third edition, the symposium included over 600 members of ministries, organizations, educational institutions, unions and associations. All these participants are deeply involved in implementing actions to support the development of a culture of the transfer of learning in education in Québec.
This welcome initiative was funded by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MEES) and organized by the Centre de transfert pour la réussite éducative du Québec (CTREQ). The theme of this year’s event was L’accompagnement et la collaboration : comment faire autrement (New approaches to support and collaboration).
The symposium, an overwhelming success, was intended to stimulate reflection on support and collaboration and on ways to improve their delivery and to optimize the transfer of both theoretical and practical knowledge.
The workshops that facilitated reflection and the presentation of inspirational initiatives offered participants a most enriching experience, all focused on developing a culture of the transfer of learning in education.
