Creating Quality Education Learning Environments is a workshop designed to explore how quality learning environments can be built and how schools that support strong relationships both inside the school and with the community, and that have a culture that encourages risk-taking, gives students a real voice and ensures that all students have opportunities to learn.

Kidder became involved in public education in Ontario in the late 1990s and has since become an expert on education policy and funding. She regularly provides advice to policy-makers and government, and her writing on education has been published in a range of media.
