Description:

“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.

  • Share Fair wasn’t a “sit down and get it” type of event for teachers, which is what we usually get. It was more of a “here, try it out and tell me what you think,” which modeled what the classroom should be like – inquiry [based]…student-driven and…engaging.

  • What I saw will forever change my view of what it means for my students to be “college ready” and “21st Century Learners.” Overall, the Share Fair was an amazing experience. I met some of the most intelligent and energized people I have ever known. It was a weekend that definitely changed my perspective on what my students should and can be doing.

  • Share Fair is an amazing hands-on experience for teachers of all grade levels and subjects. The presenters are experts in their fields and provide great learning experiences to take back to the classroom to share with students and other colleagues. Thank you so much for bringing together such a great group of educators and sharing so many fantastic ideas.  I cannot wait to attend the next conference.

  • I’ve attended two Share Fairs [and] felt like royalty each time. When you are a teacher you are always giving, so when you are on the receiving end you feel special. Thanks to [Share Fair Nation] for believing in, supporting, and investing in teachers. The gift they are giving will truly keep on giving.

    [This is] an opportunity to learn the most recent, best teaching practices…while collaborating with other professionals…I would encourage educators to come whet their appetites for learning at future Share Fairs. I can’t imagine that anyone would leave Share Fair unsatisfied.

  • Thank you for providing this day of great resources…There were opportunities to connect with teachers and think about redesigning the classroom in each session. There were a lot of ways that teachers were asked to keep pushing the boundaries. Thanks for keeping us on the cutting edge!

  • Share Fair Nation presents the world of today with lessons that will effect our future. The ingenuity, creativity, and problem solving solutions that were evidenced in each presenter left our faculty on fire, [wanting] to explore ways to implement what we experienced. Thank you.

  • I can’t say enough about the fantastic Share Fair Nation! My colleagues and I learned many new ways to engage our learners for maximum understanding, as well as enjoyment. Not only that, the whole vibe of the Share Fair Nation is one of celebrating us, the educators. From the numerous choices of intensive classrooms, to the unbelievable free lunch, to the many opportunities to win fabulous prizes, Share Fair Nation reminds us we are doing important work and we should be treated as such.  Thank You, Share Fair Nation!

  • I observed a phenomenal school that focuses on STEM, flipped classes, and problem based learning. I am inspired by the possibilities…I see that I can go so much farther with technology than what I’ve been doing. I see that I can go much farther with engaging students and providing them with authentic learning opportunities that will engage them and get them hooked on learning forever. I am pumped to incorporate what I learned into my units for next year.

  • I have been teaching for over 20 years and this is my favorite event of the year. I went last year and brought friends from other schools this year. I love that it is on a Saturday and I do not have to get a sub for my class. I love that I learned something the first hour I was there. When you have been teaching as long as I have it is rare to learn new ideas at workshops. By the time I attend a workshop it is usually old information. I consider any workshop I attend a success if I learn one thing. I learned several here. I cannot wait until next year.

    Shelli C.
    Kindergarten Teacher – Orlando, FL
  • It was a truly pleasant and informative day. I enjoyed meeting like-minded teachers and professionals from across the country. I am excited to try out the things I learned. I told my students just wait till you see what we do next. I will be integrating the many things I learned into our personalized learning days. You’ve just given my students a whole new range of choices.

  • [At Share Fair I was finally] provided with the materials I need to effectively bring technology into my science classroom. This opportunity both challenged and inspired me, and I am ready and thrilled to work with my school and the amazing educators I met in Denver to provide our students with a new and innovative learning experience.

  • What a fantastic opportunity to get resources and ideas that I can take back to my classroom and use the next school day. The presenters are excellent – both experts in their field and understanding the day in and day out needs of classroom teachers.

  • The event was filled with wonderful sources of information that can be used with all levels of ability. The instructors offered multiple ideas to use in so many environments. I would recommend the event to all might have the opportunity to attend.
