Less (Teaching) Is More (Learning)
Limited Capacity seats available

Engage in a strategy-building session on how to foster 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
  • Promote and develop student capacity for finding the right information, right relationships and right resources, all at the right time
  • Challenge learners to mine mistakes, wrong turns and “failures” for the richer learning opportunities
