Designing Spaces to Enhance Learning
October 4 and November 17
Students spend about 32.5 hours a week at school—the equivalent of a full-time job. Learning spaces need to support minds at work. But most schools are little changed from those of past generations. The webinar addresses principles and guidelines for designing highly supportive learning spaces.
Learning from Thought Leaders—Best Practices that Put Students First
November 9 and December 15
This webinar provides examples of best practices and success stories from thought leaders and peers who are exploring the boundaries of learning and education, realizing success by putting students first and creating new approaches to learning spaces. Following the webinar, participants will be able to determine changes to try in their learning environment and identify resources for sharing and learning from peers and thought leaders.
Game Changers—Trends in Learning and Learning Spaces
December 7 and January 11
Change often seems the only constant in education today. When looking at the present and anticipating the future, it’s important to understand the difference between what’s trendy and what’s a trend. This webinar examines the trends in tools, technologies and techniques that promise to change how we teach and learn. Participants will gain an understanding about the difference between what’s trendy and what’s an actual trend, identify where to go to stay abreast of trends, as well as provide at least three trends that will affect them.
