Rising to the Challenge is the second annual teaching, learning and research conference co-hosted by the Galileo Educational Network and the Werklund School of Education at the University of Calgary. In addition to being a peer-reviewed conference, we have invited presenters to submit their papers to this peer-reviewed conference proceedings as a way to enhance the knowledge mobilization. The conference mandate is to share the study of innovative teaching practices that support engaging student
more &raquo; ... learning experiences in K-12 and post-secondary. The conference creates opportunities for presenters to share how research informs practice and practice informs research. It is provides a forum to challenge us to be better, to build on ideas, and to thoughtfully engage in contemporary ideas of learning and teaching. It is through coming together to study learning and teaching in dynamic relationships, that we create new practice, new knowledge and new research questions (IDEAS: Rising to the Challenge Conference, 2014). Through collaborative work, we are rising to meet five challenges in today's complex learning landscape. First, we are rising to the challenge of leading for change and innovation. "Educators need to think of innovation as those actions that significantly challenge key assumptions about schools and the way they operate. Therefore, to innovate is to question the 'box' in which we operate and to IDEAS 2014 Twelfth Dimension frameworks live in the day-to-day practice of teaching and learning. Further, the conference provides an opportunity to create a new knowledge network designed to critically reflect on practice and research in order to improve teaching, learning and research. Through the conference and in the papers shared in the proceedings, a wealth of examples are presented that reflect how educators from kindergarten through post-secondary are using research to inform practice and practice to inform research as they engage in the work of teaching, learning, and leading. Through their scholarship, they are rising to the challenge of creating and supporting robust learning in today's knowledge society.
