Teachers Are Learners, Too: Next Gen Learning & PD

Join NGLC and expert panelists in Austin, TX at SXSWedu 2017.

Time & Location: 5:00 p.m. CT, Hilton Austin Downtown

DescriptionNext generation learning requires a different kind of instruction with new roles for educators. It demands teachers embrace a new mindset and use different skills. Few educators enter personalized, blended, competency or project-based schools with prior experiences in redesigned learning environments. But formal preparation for next gen teaching and learning is nascent, and traditional professional development falls short in filling this need. Panelists will discuss the following:

  • The specific and unique competencies required of next gen educators
  • Next gen strategies that support professional learning
  • New structures to invest in educators and recognize their learning

An audience Q&A will close out the session.
