IBSA Webinar: Designing for Learner Agency - May 17, 2021 - May 17, 2021
The first of our 2021 IBSA Webinars brings the expertise of Dr Jennifer Chang Wathall to our schools.
This will be a highly interactive, professional learning workshop which will adopt a social constructivist learning approach. Educators will be encouraged to share their experiences to construct their own knowledge and understanding through small discussions and group work and have the opportunity to create practical artefacts for their context.
The following questions will guide our thinking:
- Why do we want to design for learner agency?
- What is learner agency and how do we empower our learners to take ownership and agency over their learning?
- How do we design curriculum and instruction to promote learner agency?
