Rethinking School: A Pop Up Course
This fall, join GOA for our first professional learning pop up course, “Rethinking School.”
Facilitated by a GOA learning design coach, this week-long course for educators will focus on teaching and leading in modern schools.
FREE FOR MEMBER SCHOOLS.
The goals of the Rethinking School course are:
- to coalesce school leaders and teachers around big ideas in rethinking the design and culture of modern schools
- to introduce new concepts and ways of thinking around school change efforts and learn from, and hear from, innovative school models
- to join a community of global faculty from around the world on modern learning and whole school design
Dates: October 6 through October 13, 2017
Who: School teams including administrators, directors and educators
Cost: FREE for member schools. $150 for non-member school participants
In this course, you will immerse yourself in conversations around big ideas in rethinking the design and culture of modern schools, learn new concepts and ways of thinking around school change efforts, and learn from experts in the field on innovations in whole school design. Reimagine the future of education in your own classrooms and schools. Participants will join GOA’s platform to engage in a short, asynchronous week long course. Conversations in this course will be like having a water cooler conversation with school teachers and leaders around the globe.
The anticipated time commitment for participants is between 2 and 4 hours total for the entire week. We ask that all participants make a commitment to engage fully in the course and reflect and share with colleagues from other schools. The course will be facilitated by GOA learning design coaches. The course will culminate with a live moderated discussion with innovative independent school leaders who are rethinking schools to meet the challenges of the modern era. This discussion will be recorded and available for participants to watch asynchronously or synchronously. The tentative date for the Rethinking School moderated discussion is Thursday, October 12th.
Cost: FREE for GOA member schools. $150 for non-member school participants. To register a group of 10 or more, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the title “Rethinking School.” We’ll send you a form so you can have a team at your school in the course.
