    2014 R.W.B. Jackson Lecture with Professor Pasi Sahlberg
    Why the quality of Finland's education system can exceed the quality of its teachers
    The quality of teaching and educational change are major areas of public concern in Canada and around the world. Today many governments in search of a panacea to improve educational performance turn to teachers, believing that if only they could attract 'the best and the brightest' into the teaching profession, the quality of education would get better. In this year's R.W.B. Jackson Lecture, Dr. Pasi Sahlberg argues that having better teachers in schools will not automatically improve students' learning outcomes and that teachers alone cannot overcome the societal issues affecting children's opportunities to learn. Following a brief introduction to teacher policies in Finland, Dr. Sahlberg puts forward an intriguing question: Why the quality of Finland's education system can exceed the quality of its teachers.
    Event Registration is Closed. LIVE Webcast Online on April 17, 2014 at 7 p.m. Please click on link.

    Les transformations du travail contemporain et leurs conséquences en matière de formation
    Conférence présentée par Josiane Boutet
    Depuis le premier choc pétrolier de 1974, l'ensemble des économies mondiales ont subi d'intenses bouleversements. Le travail humain a été transformé sur de très nombreux plans que nous présenterons, dans une approche à la fois linguistique et ergonomique. Ces mutations du travail ont eu des conséquences profondes en matière de formation des salariés, dans des sociétés industrialisés comme la France.
