eLeadership Guide – Learning Disruption


In June 2021, Alberta Education invited school authorities to submit applications for new funding to develop targeted interventions to address COVID-19 learning disruptions for Grades 1-3 students. This eLeadership guide will examine research about system education leadership during learning disruption and provide opportunities for participants to listen to stories of practice, about targeted interventions to address learning disruption, from a system education leader perspective.
