About the workshop

How might school communities design and structure learning experiences and environments to support the development and demonstration of student agency through action and engagement beyond the classroom?

  • Evaluate approaches to learning and approaches to teaching that aim to support understanding of and engagement with complex issues in a way that honors personal and community needs and aspirations.
  • Identify opportunities for institutional growth, enhanced curriculum design and deeper and responsive community engagement.
