Seizing The Moment: Realizing the Promise of Student-Centered Learning
The principles of Student-Centered Learning can positively impact ALL students, and there are lessons to be learned at the practice and policy levels that can leverage scalability.
United by a commitment to educational practices which excite students’ curiosity and cultivate their interests, in November 2015 a group of practitioners, administrators, and thought-leaders throughout the country gathered in Hartford, CT to discuss the importance of student-centered learning strategies, and to consider how to extend their benefits for all students, particularly those young people who are traditionally not well-served by our public education systems. The experts worked together over the following months to develop a policy brief which elaborates on the key principles of student-centered learning, and also features discussions of relevant research, recommendations for expanding student-centered approaches, and profiles of several of the organizations’ student-centered efforts
The session will feature an hour Panel Discussion and Question & Answer session examining student-centered learning at the levels of practice (traditional K-12 and Alternative Education) and policy.
The briefing will take place from 9:00am-11:00am, with the Program from 9:30-10:30am and coffee, pastry and networking time available from 9:00-9:30am and 10:30-11:00am.
