CLC Hires Director of Learning

Barb Mulholland has been working in Chinook's Edge since 2009 and helped implement the dual credit pilot project.

Barb Mulholland has been named the new Director of Learning for the Community Learning Campus.

Mulholland, who has been working in education for 25 years now, will be looking for opportunities to enhance learning for all ages in Olds and the surrounding areas.

She says the future of education will focus on smoothing transitions for students, in particular by continuing with their dual credit courses.

Chinook's Edge School Division along with the CLC had been taking part in a pilot project by offering a variety of dual credit programming to students.

The project was a huge success and Mulholland was able to share information as part of a provincial advisory committee in preparation for a new government strategy for dual credit programming, which should be coming out in the next month.
