When asked "What will conference attendees learn from/with you?" Trevor said this: "You will learn to answer questions like these: - How can we plan for curiosity as an entry point into our curriculum? - How can we capture student generated questions and have these provide us a clear direction for learning moving forward? - How can we scaffold for agency, independence, and collaboration? - How can we embed cooperative learning strategies to help students share their understanding and move towards doing rather than merely knowing? - How can we facilitate assessment exercises and conversations more consistently in our classrooms and in our teaching time so students take on a more authentic role in the assessment process? - How can we facilitate meaningful conversations in student/teacher assessment conferences?"

Early Bird Registration Closes THIS FRIDAY, March 29, 2024, for the 2nd Annual Igniting Inquiry Conference. Don't miss your opportunity to learn from and with JESSICA VANCE. When asked "What will conference attendees learn from/with you?" Jessica said this: "Participants will explore the seven dispositions of an inquiry leader, identifying how these attributes empower all learners. Participants will be called to further consider the balance of our mindsets and moves as both inquiry and managerial leaders engaging in an inquiry process that compares systems and reflects on the cultures that we are trying to cultivate. Some big questions we’ll tackle: - What dispositions and mindsets are necessary for our roles as we lead with a lens of inquiry? - What are the ways we empower ourselves and our teachers towards a more reflective practice? - What are the small and big ways we nurture an environment of inquiry? - How can we honor the agency of “our learners” while moving our programmes and schools towards sustainable growth?"
