Faculty Research Project: A Year Long Study of Best Practices Across the Curriculum

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Members of our faculty engaged in a yearlong exploration of effective innovative practices to create optimal models in modern education at the secondary school level. School visits, research, discussion and reflection reshaped our approach to learning. We will share our findings of systemic, curricular and specific classroom models, evaluation and assessment, use of technology as a tool, project-based learning and the ever-shifting roles of the teacher and the student and discuss how we are implementing change at our school.
In this session you will:
-Learn how we planned, organized and implemented our study
-Discover what best practices we observed and how teachers and schools developed successful classes and programs
(-Learn about authentic PBL and ethics education)
-Hear what we learned about our own professional and personal growth by challenging and questioning ourselves and each other as education professionals
-Discuss how you can do a similar faculty project at your school
