      Hi all,

      I am writing on behalf of UNEVOC-Canada. I would like to share with you the
      attached memo about an upcoming conference on enhancing learning potential
      to be
      held in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I thought that this is something that would be
      of great
      interest to your community. Also, if you can help us disseminate this
      information

      Attention all educators and those with an interest in educational research:

      About the Conference

      UNEVOC- Canada in partnership with the International Centre for the
      Enhancement
      of
      Learning Potential is hosting an international conference to be held in
      Winnipeg,
      Manitoba, August 18-25, 2001. The conference entitled "Unlocking Human
      Potential to
      Learn" is designed to introduce participants to the best practices and
      innovative
      approaches, strategies and techniques for teaching "learning how to learn"
      skills to
      children, youth and adults. Paper presentations will focus on three major
      themes:
      enhancing learning skills of special needs and gifted learners of diverse
      cultures,
      developing critical skills for lifelong learning and improving effectiveness
      and
      efficiency
      in vocational education and workplace training.

      The major focus of the conference will be Dr. Reuven Feuerstein�s work on
      the
      development of theories of structural cognitive modifiability and mediated
      learning.

      Twenty-eight papers will be presented by an international array of speakers,
      with
      applications
      of instrumental
      enrichment in the areas of culturally deprived and at-risk learners, adult
      education,
      deaf and FAS/FAE learners, E-learning, Canadian school application, virtual
      learning
      environments, the Canadian and Brazilian penal systems and more.

      About the Workshops

      Following the conference a series of comprehensive workshops will be held to

      participants in the theory and practice of Mediated Learning. Participants
      will

      experience to
      enhance the learning potential of students. Workshops will provide
