This workshop addresses how educators can redesign learning spaces to support personalized learning and student agency. “It is not about decorating learning spaces. It is about designing them to amplify learning.” Dr. Robert Dillon & Rebecca Louise Hare, The Space: A Guide for Educators (2016).

Join us for an engaging, hands-on workshop that takes a closer look at how innovative learning spaces can support personalized learning and student agency in any class, at any grade level. This workshop is inspired by the research and strategies shared in the book The Space: A Guide for Educators, by Dr. Robert Dillon and Rebecca Louise Hare (2016).

Participants will engage in exploratory activities that will look at practical ways that educators can redesign and transform their classrooms into flexible learning environments that support student-centered learning, meet the needs of ALL students, and promote the 4 C’s of 21st century teaching and learning. Participants will walk away with ideas and “hacks” that they can immediately try out in their own classrooms. Lunch will be provided on site at no extra cost. The session will be capped at 20 educators, so reserve your spot today! Please bring a mobile device/laptop with you.
