Engaging & Empowering Learners 3-Day Workshop (On Course I)
An in-depth immersion in empowering learner-centered principles and strategies…our most-requested event
Our most popular professional development event, this is the same event as the highly acclaimed Engaging & Empowering Learners Workshop (On Course I) that has been offered since 1996 at conference centers throughout North America. Testimonials from educators reveal the powerful impact this workshop has had on past participants. While this 3-day workshop presents the same foundational principles as the 1- and 2-day introductory workshops, the strategies presented in this workshop are different and the extended schedule provides an immersion in learner-centered education and cognitive neuroscience that brings about significant changes in the way participants interact with students. Participants leave with dozens of proven strategies that they can implement immediately, and that empower students to overcome numerous challenges to reaching educational goals and overcoming equity gaps.
Additionally, participants are provided a source of hundreds of innovative ways that the workshop strategies have been employed by other educators across the curriculum (from Advising to Zoology and all educational roles in between). Another very positive outcome of the interactive nature of the workshop is the creation of community among participants that lasts long after the event has ended. After the workshop, expect workshop participants to be informed, inspired, and rejuvenated!
