KEYNOTE SESSION: WHAT ENVIRONMENTS AND EXPERIENCES BEST FOSTER LEARNING? A FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE.

Join a panel of our very own faculty, staff, and administrators—Carol Cooley, Kevin Haglin, Jeanne Lacourt, Miguel Martinez-Saenz, and Eddah Mutua-Kombo—in an interactive multi-media filled presentation that launches our thematic series for the year! 

Explore answers to the following questions: What helps us all learn? What learning environments invite engagement? What experiences enable us to take risks into the unknown?  How does it feel to have a glimmer of enlightenment or a boom of excitement? What keeps us from being engaged? What prevents us from digging deep and immersing ourselves?

Bring your mobile devices—smartphones, tablets, iPads, iPods, etc. with you and enjoy an interactive multi-media filled presentation that launches our thematic series for the year! Look forward to on-going opportunities for reflective and transformative conversations, roundtables, creative productions, speaker events, and workshops that will ignite a passion and excitement for teaching and learning in ourselves and our students.
