A New Way Forward: Creating the Conditions for Learner-Centered Innovation
If we see the pandemic as a portal and use this opportunity to create a new way forward, we can choose to leave behind the parts that no longer fit the future we want to create. Participate in this session and experience an opportunity to focus on the skills, mindsets, and dispositions we want to ensure in our learners. Students must feel valued, and educators must create opportunities for them to reach their full potential. This session will focus on how to co-design meaningful experiences, connect with learners as individuals, and help them develop skills to navigate their world today and in the future.
