At the June 10th, 2019 Educator’s Forum we will introduce our new personal/professional development program for educators. This will be the pilot season for this program where educators can take part in a unique opportunity to learn and grow personally and professionally in a learning lab environment. We have a limited number of spots open for this opportunity so please do not hesitate to let us know your interest. During the last two weeks of June we will be setting up interviews with interested educators who want to change it up in their world of education. We invite all those who believe themselves to be an educator - classroom teachers, administrators, and even those that are teaching their kids at home. We are looking for a wide variety of knowledge and experience because we value the fruit of diversity.
The cohort will complete three phases. The first phase being instructional and developmental over the course of eight (8) weeks. The second phase will have the cohort meet once a month to design a summer enhancement program for the summer of 2020. The final third phase will include the facilitation of the summer enhancement program that will allow educators to test their new theories and skills learned during Phase 1. The final phase will be a learning lab environment where they will be able to observe and learn from each other while given the opportunity to reflect and improve.
Phase 1: Mondays, July 1st to August 19th
The cohort will meet on Mondays for 8 weeks. Subject matter during this period will include:
Personal motivation and values
School System today - strengths and gaps
Defining “good” teaching and its implications
Theory of Experiential Education
Design Thinking in the Classroom
Technology in the Classroom
Phase 2: Once monthly to design the summer enhancement program. This can also serve as a support system for cohort educators during the school year.
Phase 3: Facilitating the summer enhancement program. Educators will be paired off to co-lead sections of the program. This will allow support and meaningful feedback.
