Event Information

DESCRIPTION:  This is a three-day event where participants will:

  • Session 1 (November 9, 2022) - explore adult learning principles that are integral to establishing effective professional learning.  This session will actively engage participants in identifying and planning for professional learning that assesses knowledge and learning gaps, builds a "compelling why" to incorporate new information/skills, and provide skill-building activities and opportunities for practice for effective learning transfer.  Participants will leave this session with facilitation techniques for whole and small group learning with adults.
  • Session 2 (December 1, 2022) - engage in this session by building best practices in working with adult learners using hands-on application and practice with the facilitation strategies. During session 2, participants will analyze professional learning sessions and will begin mapping out plans for a district or workshop series.
  • Session 3 (December 7, 2022) - work to develop whole-day as well as half-day professional learning sessions for their professional settings. This session will help participants to design and refine a session they are ready to facilitate, as well as map out a professional learning progression.
