Less (Teaching) Is More Learning: A Master Class Mini

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the arts of teaching is knowing when to lead, when to help, and when to let the students figure it out themselves. We take the cliché about being the guide on the side seriously. But, how do you get from student dependence to independence? Taken from our popular Master Class Less (Teaching) Is More (Learning), this session will engage participants in a strategy-building session on how to seed (start) and grow student-owned learning in the classroom (and survive!). Don’t expect one-size-fits-all answers – but questions, strategies, possibilities, examples, and maybe a few awkward (reflective) silences…
Join us as we explore ways to:
  • Engage and empower students as critical thinkers, questioners, connectors and creators of content
  • Build student repertoire of problem-solving strategies
  • Challenge learners to mine mistakes, wrong turns and “failures” for the richer learning opportunities

  • Speakers
