  • Biography:

    Originally from Edmonton, and now based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Shelley Moore is a highly sought-after teacher, researcher, speaker and storyteller and has worked with school districts and community organizations throughout both Canada and the United States. Shelley's presentations are constructed based on contexts of schools and communities and integrate theory and effective practices of inclusion, special education, curriculum and teacher professional development. Her first book entitled, “One Without the Other” was released in July 2016 to follow up her TEDx talk. Shelley completed an undergraduate degree in Special Education at the University of Alberta, her masters at Simon Fraser University, and is currently a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia.

    Keynote Address: 

    This session will deconstruct what inclusive education means in today’s classrooms and communities. We will also discuss common misunderstandings and myths and leave with ideas and possibilities of inclusive leaning communities and all who benefit.

    Workshop: Inclusive Education: Getting to Know Learners from a Strength-Based Perspective

    This session will look at how changing planning models are moving away from deficit medical based frameworks to plans that look at the strengths and contributions of individuals. We will see examples and share strategies of how these strength-based perspectives can guide program planning with a focus on support and self-regulation of learning.
