The Connected Learner Experience


This is not just a sit-and-get experience. It’s not your average two-day conference that gets you excited but then leaves you wondering, “What next?” This is your chance to go deeper.

This is 7 months of coached, personalized professional learning where you will be a participant in changing your own teaching practice. You’ll co-create content in a collegial, exclusive community of practice full of other educators just like you who share your struggles and obstacles.

There will be two full day, face-to-face events — a kickoff and a culminating event — as well as five learning cycles paced out over the school year. Additionally, ongoing professional learning will take place through webinars, 1-1 coached meetings, and thought-filled discussions in a virtual community. With support and scaffolding, your team will discover a topic of interest and through a coached process, explore possibilities through the development of action research to be applied in your local setting.
