Partner Research Schools Conference

Campus Calgary/Open Minds was pleased to be a part of the first Partner Research Schools Conference in August 2016 by hosting conference participants and guests for a day at the Calgary Zoo, one of the 11 CC/OM sites in Calgary.

Partner Research Schools Conference
Planned jointly between College of Alberta School Superintendents (CASS) Zone 5, Alberta Education and the University of Calgary, the Partner Research Schools Conference provided opportunities for dialogue regarding leading innovation through research - active inquiry and practice.

With a mission to transform teaching and learning by increasing engagement through community, funder and educational partnerships and a vision for each student to experience personalized learning within a connected community, Campus Calgary/Open Minds is a unique and innovative program in the City of Calgary.

Participants and guests of the conference learned about the CC/OM Program, conservation efforts at the Calgary Zoo, and the way in which the impact of  the CC/OM collaboration has been measured through a Chevron sponsored Social Return on Investment.

And of course, we shared in experiences available to students during their custom designed weeks of learning in the Campus Calgary/Open Minds Program!  CC/OM thanks its many dedicated partners and looks forward to an exciting 2016-2017 school year!
