Episode Four – The Teaching Quality Standard

Episode Four – The Teaching Quality Standard

In this episode, we take a look at Alberta’s Teaching Quality Standard (TQS) from the perspective of someone who has worked on its development, a brand new teacher, and the current president of the Alberta Teachers Association (ATA).

We talk about how the TQS is a guide to what it means to be a teacher in the province, how the TQS has served to generate new conversations about teaching and learning, and the professional supports that are available to teachers at all stages of their career.

You’ll hear the voices of:

Francine Zhou Yuheng — A new teacher and graduate of the teacher education program from University of Alberta

Jason Schilling — President, Alberta Teachers Association

Paul McLeod — Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources; St. Albert Public Schools
