Join In Our 13th Annual LCEEQ Conference to be held Online
“The Reflective Practitioner”
February 7-8, 2022
The last twelve plus months have seen a number of dramatic changes in how education is offered to students at all levels. No one could have predicted how the world was forced to adjust to a pandemic. We have learned many things as a result of the disruptions. Do we go back to what we know, or do we seize the opportunity to have a hard look at lessons learned during these unprecedented times?
Someone recently compared our current situation to relocating one’s residence. What do we ensure is on the moving van, what do we leave behind, and what do we purchase for our new home? Similar questions can be asked about our education practices.
Laura McBain of Stanford D School, a place where people use design to develop their own creative potential, states, “In the context of education, educators who take a futurist’s mindset are looking to cultivate young people as lifelong, adaptive learners, rather than being concerned with teaching what’s immediately measured on a test. From the perspective of an administrator or district leader, it’s about getting comfortable asking bigger questions, such as ‘What is the role of schools?’ and “How might teachers foster and model agency, flexibility, and resiliency?"
LCEEQ Conference 2022, "The Reflective Practioner" will provide the opportunity for reflection and collegial exchange on a number of issues including: a deeper understanding of learning, how the curriculum should enhance such, the role of assessment, equity, and diversity, optimizing technology, and the importance of health and well-being for all. Are you ready to engage in some reflection on your practice?
