The Principles of Learning

June 20, 2022

The Principles of Learning PDF

It is expected that all school administrators, support personnel and district councils create on-going opportunities for dialogue. These opportunities will support learners in developing a common language and understanding of the Principles. Growth will take place as each learner reads, interprets, reflects and communicates his/her learning to others. The understandings will then be applied to the daily practice of the learner. The terms instructional leader and learner apply to all individuals, irrespective of role within Winnipeg School Division. The role of leader or learner is defined by the purpose and context of each circumstance.
