Description

Le succes du NCLC/CLB repose sur plusieurs facteurs - le travail extraordinaire d'eminents universitaires canadiens; l'engagement continu de la part des parties prenantes gouvernementales et non gouvernementales aux paliers federal, provincial et local; et, enfin, un engagement inconditionnel de la part d'une communaute de pratique qui s'y est investie. Cet ouvrage collectif aborde une gamme de sujets : le contexte historique et politique qui a mene a l'elaboration des normes canadiennes, leur positionnement actuel dans le milieu educatif mondial, et les cultures de recherche et d'enseignement. L'ouvrage propose un survol des projets recents et en cours de meme que du materiel, des outils et des ressources d'enseignement et d'evaluation issus des NCLC/CLB. Il offre une vision d'avenir audacieuse qui entreverrait l'application de ces normes aux domaines de l'enseignement superieur, des competences essentielles, de la litteratie, de la formation en milieu de travail, de meme que des langues etrangeres et autochtones. Le 20e anniversaire du NCLC/CLB est l'occasion parfaite de reflechir a l'etendue et a l'importance de cet exceptionnel produit intellectuel canadien.
