Making Sense of Learning Transfer

Monday, February 25, 2019 - 3:30pm

Presented by Julie Stern and Nathalie Lauriault

Most educators want students to be strong thinkers and problem-solvers; and to be empowered to use their learning beyond the school walls. But applying what we’ve learned to new contexts – also known as learning transfer – can be incredibly difficult to achieve. Nearly all learners, young and old, struggle with learning transfer. Do you want to help students become more conscious of their thinking and increase their ability to unlock complex situations? Join us for this cutting-edge webinar that will help you to promote depth and breadth of understanding by using learning transfer as both a means and an end goal of learning.

Developing Expert Learners

Monday, February 4, 2019 - 3:30pm

Presented by Michael McDowell

We strive to empower our students to lead their own inquiry, discover knowledge, and construct approaches to solving real-life challenges. Often, though, we make the mistake of designing learning experiences that burden students with the unrealistic expectation of expertise that hasn’t yet been developed. The solution: proper scaffolding for surface, deep, and transfer learning. In this webinar, Michael McDowell will discuss practices that strategically support students as they move from novices to experts in core academics.
