Abstract

The Alberta Initiative for School Improvement (AISI) is a provincial, multi-million dollar project in Alberta, Canada, which aims to introduce innovative and creative action research projects into the Kindergarten to Grade 12 learning system. Now in its seventh year, and increasingly recognized internationally as a leader in school improvement, AISI has enabled a renaissance in Alberta schools concentrating on the integration of learning and technology into the curricula through empowering professional learning communities. This paper provides a brief synopsis of the AISI initiative and some of the key findings from a longitudinal provincial research review. It is also the intent of this paper to discuss some of the complexities, and implications of engaging in cross-organizational research (in the area of elearning) when the partners include governments, universities, school jurisdictions, parent communities, teachers' unions and other unique collaborators.
