How Space Structures Learning
Presenter: Joe Koss
Location: HS Library
An educational space can be thought as the place, movement, and arrangement of the teaching and learning. Part of space is the physical architecture of the learning environment—the spatial arrangements of the teaching and learning.
The space choices of the learning environment (physical architecture) very deliberately structure the knowledge and communication architecture of the teaching and learning. We can think of the communication architecture as the framing of the interactions and relations with the members of the environment (teacher to student and student to student). The knowledge architecture is the relationship the environment has to learning itself, how knowledge is transmitted and comes through in space and structure (again, teacher to student and student to student).
This workshop hopes to look at how 3 separate conceptions of space impacts learning by creating 3 “vignettes”—short sketches—to see how students interact and learn within these 3 separate spaces.

Improving Student Learning by Building Reflective Capacity in Teachers
Presenter: Jonah Rosenfield (Lincoln)
Location: HS Room 404
Building the reflective capacity of teachers within a school is critical to improving student learning. In most school systems, however, the teacher supervision (growth) process is led by building principals who, despite best intentions, only observe a teacher in action two or three times per year (less than 1% of the time a teacher is teaching). In this interactive workshop focused on teacher supported teacher growth, participants will learn how to use teaching standards to grow professionally and improve student learning. Every participant will leave with a plan that includes self-identified specific areas of improvement, a method to organize and collect evidence, and skills to engage in reflective conversations. Participants are encouraged to bring a colleague with them to continue the work after the workshop ends.

Presenter: Naomi Barbour and Laura Rock (Lincoln)
Location: HS Room 405
