We are excited to try a new program to help you plan your experience at the 2016 NESSC High School Redesign in Action Conference. PLEASE NOTE: That all sessions are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Adding a session to your personal agenda does not ensure yourself a seat in the session, but rather a way to help you plan where to head.

What Do Learner-Centered Classrooms Look Like?

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As schools make the shift toward learner-centered environments, the roles of students and teachers change. Students become the agents of their own learning, and teachers ensure that students have what they need to meet the expectations of proficiency. But how? Exactly what does this transition entail, and how can we tell that it’s on the right track? Educators must focus on continuously deepening implementation to ensure that this shift is not just a superficial move, but rather a driver of increased student engagement, equity, and academic growth over time.

In this interactive, multimedia session, presenters will help attendees wrestle with questions that are at the heart of student-centered learning: how do instruction and assessment change, and why? What do these changes mean for students and their role learning? In their fifth year of implementing a proficiency-based system, teachers from RSU 2 will discuss the structures, practices, and the daily commitments that enable the development of learner-centered classrooms.
