Putting Students First: Embracing a Student-Centered Classroom
Workshop Description: Describe the characteristics of a teacher-centered vs a student-centered learning environment. Identify strategies, tools, and resources to make the shift to a more engaging, inclusive, student-centered classroom. Develop a plan for creating a student-centered classroom where students will feel comfortable taking risks, trying new things, and being themselves.
Moving from a teacher-centered to student-centered learning environment puts students at the heart of education and empowers them to take ownership of their learning. Join Lauren Boucher for this hands-on, interactive workshop as she shares a wealth of practical strategies, tools, and resources that will inspire you to make the shift to a more engaging, inclusive, student-centered classroom. You will also have the opportunity to develop a plan for creating your own student-centered learning environment where students feel comfortable taking risks, trying new things, and being themselves. Join us to embark on this transformative journey together and unlock the true potential of student-centered education!
