From an elementary school transformed into a vibrant mini-society, to students from different grades and cultural perspectives tackling complex problems facing their communities, these programs have won innovation awards because they empower young learners to understand how they can play a role in solving real-world challenges now, and in the future.
The 2016-2017 CEA Ken Spencer Awards recognize the benefits of team-teaching, multi-grade classrooms, and students connecting with local businesses, organizations and community institutions as supportive learning environments that break down cultural barriers. These programs encourage students’ self-discovery that there’s more to life – and to their futures – than getting good grades.
For a booklet showcasing the work of all 7 Ken Spencer Award winners:
The Ken Spencer Award for Innovation in Teaching and Learning was established with the generous contribution of Dr. Ken Spencer to recognize and publicize innovative work that is sustainable and has the potential of being taken up by others; to encourage a focus on transformative change in schools; and to provide profile for classroom innovation within school districts, schools, and the media.

I wanted to pass on a sneak peek at one of the multidisciplinary events coming to Congress 2017. Colleagues at SAGE have recently completed a 9,000-respondent survey to learn more about who is using big data to conduct research in the social sciences and what kinds of challenges they’re encountering.
Given ongoing work among your members in this area, we wanted to make sure you had seen their new Congress blog post – “The Lowdown on Big Data,” which shares some of their top-level findings – and the details of their open event at Congress, which might be of interest to your association attendees. The event, titled “Getting Comfortable with Big Data,” will take place between 10:30 and noon on Thursday, June 1, at the Expo Event Space at the Congress Hub in the Mattamy Athletic Centre.

Study: The Effects of Education on Canadians’ Retirement Savings Behaviour
The next World Curriculum Studies Conference will be held in Melbourne in December, 2018. The conference, under the auspices of the International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (IAACS), will be co-hosted with the Australian Curriculum Studies Association (ACSA) and the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE). It will be held in the University of Melbourne, located in the heart of the city of Melbourne.
The conference will take place over three days and is to be structured in terms of plenary keynote addresses, invited feature panels, and paper presentations. Consistent with the mission of IAACS and in the tradition of previous events, this conference will have an explicitly international orientation, with a view to furthering the project of transnational curriculum inquiry, albeit drawing on what are often distinctively national perspectives, and working within and across them. Participation and contribution is hereby invited from curriculum scholars working in different countries across the world.
It is indeed timely and appropriate for this next conference to be situated in the Asia-Pacific region. Australia is clearly but ambivalently located in the ‘South’, that is, geopolitically and increasingly economically in Asia while being associated historically more with British and more generally European traditions and cultures. Furthermore, Australia’s own complex history of indigenous displacement and its commitment to reconciliation and recognition in this regard provides a major imperative in terms of the challenges, at once local, national and global, of rethinking curriculum praxis and inquiry, worldwide. These are some of the tensions and complexities that will, we hope, shape and inform the conference – the 6th and most recent in a series of such events.
We invite you to start planning now to attend, with a view to being both intellectually stimulated and culturally enriched, experiencing Melbourne at its very best, and Australia more generally, and engaging with richly informed curriculum scholarship from all over the world.
