Welcome to the Alberta School Learning Commons council!

Yes, we have changed our name! The decision to change our council title to reflect the transition of library to learning commons was made at our 2016 AGM. Our website will be updated to reflect this change in the coming months.

The Year of the Learning Commons

The April 2015 issue of Teacher Librarian kicked off The Year of the Learning Commons: April 2015 - May 2016. A special website provides events and ideas for you to join the celebration.


Leading Learning: Standards of Practice for School Library Learning Commons

Leading Learning: Standards of Practice for School Libraries in Canada provides supports and tools for implementing and sustaining a school library learning commons. Its creation is the result of an extensive committee consultation process that took place in provinces across Canada. This important resource is available free of charge from the School Libraries in Canada website.


Alberta Education Learning Commons Policy and Guidelines 

In another significant learning commons development, Alberta Education recently issued a Learning Commons Policy and Guidelines statement. The policy statement and guidelines appear in the Guide to Education. This makes Alberta the first province in Canada to put in place a policy recognizing the integral role of the learning commons in teaching and learning.
