ILEA Institutional Forum Meeting – Winter 2019

Dear ILEA colleagues,

Happy new year to all of you! May the Year 2019 be a happy and healthy one for you and your families!

As we discussed at our fall meeting, our ILEA Winter Forum meeting will be held in Richmond Hill on February 11 from 10:00 to 3:00. A big thank-you to Mariela Giuliano and her staff of the York Region District School Board (International Languages Program) for volunteering to host.

The focus of the WINTER FORUM will continue to be on fewer topics with longer discussion times having both pedagogical and administrative themes.

The agenda will include presentations at the beginning followed by group discussions in smaller groups.

The following items will be included on the agenda for presentation and discussion:

  • Using technology to enhance curriculum;
  • Task-based language teaching/working with teachers on assessment planning;
  • Performance appraisals.

If you have additional topics that you would like to discuss, in particular:

  • policies and procedures;
  • trillium and registration (which were pretty hot topics in previous meetings); or
  • any other,

please email Luca Buiani ( and, ILEA Chair, by February 1 to include your topic on the agenda.

Please confirm by February 1 if you, or a colleague of yours in representation of your board/organization, will be attending!

We look forward to seeing you on February 11th.

Thank you,

Luca Buiani, ILEA Chair

The location of the meeting is: Dr. Bette Stephenson Centre For Learning, 36 Regatta Ave, Richmond Hill ON L4E 4R1
