“Knowing Your Learner”
Saturday, February 4th, 2016
9:00am – 4:00pm
Cost: $40 (includes lunch)
We each employ our own strategies around knowing our learners. But if you haven’t spent time with Nick Mosca and Allison Zmuda, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear their thinking and approaches in regard to this increasingly important topic.
Nick Mosca will share and discuss his passion, “A Path to Personalized Mindfulness in Education.” Nick holds a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard University where he won The Billings Prize for inspiring behavioral change in education through personalized mindfulness and humor. Nick’s work has enabled hundreds of administrators, teachers, parents, and students to align mindfulness practices with their skills and interests.
Allison Zmuda’s session will focus on “The Controls of Personalized Learning.”A former public high school teacher, Allison is a prolific author and an education consultant specializing in learning that is challenging, possible, and worthy of the attempt. For the past 15 years, she has worked with educators to grow ideas in curriculum, assessment, and instruction, while providing illustrative examples and practical strategies to get started along the personalized learning path.
The Afternoon Session will feature Joseph Hutchison, Poet Laureate of Colorado (2014-2018). In addition to being the award-winning author of 16 poetry collections, Joseph directs two programs for the University of Denver’s University College. Joseph is sure to be a poetic addition to this day of learning.
Additional afternoon sessions include roundtable conversations with Allison and Nick, Love First, Teach Second with Jed Dearybury, and a Panel Discussion with STEM Launch Students.
This program is approved for 4 professional development hours. The University of Denver, Center for Professional Development (CPD), is approved by the Morgridge College of Education to sponsor professional development for educators. CPD maintains responsibility for this program and its content. The cost is $160, and is non-refundable.
