What does it take to get the most
Imagine spending a day with authors and experts on a particular topic, not to pique your interest in a topic or review what you already know, but to deepen your understanding in ways that makes a difference in your day-to-day practice. Imagine professional learning where your access to those experts was not the beginning nor at the ending of your learning but the center of your experience; flanked by opportunities to explore and inquire into that topic’s importance to you and your students, and followed by support for application and transfer into your practice.
Learning Forward Colorado has been exploring such ideas in the development of "bookended learning opportunities". To learn more about this concept – go to Bookended Learning on our Events page.
What do Bruce Wellman and
Participants, in their evaluations of the Learning Forward Colorado Annual Conference featuring Bruce Wellman, cited time and again the remarkable clarity and precision of language with which Bruce presents information and facilitates group conversations and actions.
Throughout the day participants had meaningful opportunities to dialogue both with their learning teams and with others from different schools and districts. Wheels turned, dendrites fired, and high energy thinking and reflecting dominated.
