The experience and realities of teaching and administration are constantly in transition- an exchange can bring a wealth of insights to the work you do here in Alberta.  Exchanges are a unique and truly interactive professional peer-to-peer development opportunity for teachers and school administrators to collaborate. Open the door and get out of your comfort zone, engage in meaningful and critical conversations, and experience first-hand how your peers around the globe engage with best practices. See how other systems approach matters such as inclusion, indigenous ways of knowing, second language learning, remote and rural education. For the short-term exchange, you are hosted by your exchange partner for 10 days, and you then reciprocate by hosting the overseas teacher. For full-year exchanges you switch homes and positions for the entire year. Destinations include Australia, Spain, Germany, the United Kingdom and Iceland. There are even possibilities within Canada and our province.
