When exchange teachers and principals are immersed in other cultures and education systems, they are not simply ambassadors showcasing the quality of Alberta teachers or our province’s education system on the world stage. They return to the province positioned to think critically and integrate their body of international educational experiences into making our province and its education system better for all. This session will walk you through the process and introduce newly returned teachers to share their stories, to see if an exchange is your next professional development endeavour. The Teacher Exchange program is celebrating over forty years and has facilitated hundreds of exchanges. The coordinator of the program will describe this fantastic opportunity, the destinations, process, highlights and challenges. Recent participants (singles, couples and families) will share their stories and answer your questions. Follow the Twitter exchange conversations at #teacherexchange and watch the Teacher Exchange Video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpJubjeg5Xs&feature=share&list=UU7UCFdfHw6vwyKIn8rEyH-g.
