Teachers Making the Shift to Equitable, Learner-Centered Education: Harnessing Mental Models, Motivations, and Moves
The traditional “sit and get” classroom will not help us achieve educational equity or promote the deeper learning skills our students need to succeed. The long game of systems-change work is critical to advancing learner-centered education, but how can the system support the transition to learner-centered education through teachers’ mental models, motivations, and moves? The newest CompetencyWorks report, “Teachers Making the Shift to Equitable, Learner-Centered Education: Harnessing Mental Models, Motivations, and Moves,” provides a comprehensive, research-based response to these questions. In this webinar, report authors Wendy Surr, Kim Carter, and Andrea Stewart will explore key recommendations outlined in the report, joined by practitioners Patrick Hardy, principal at Hinsdale South High School in Darien, IL, and Chanda Hassett, 6-12 SPED/MTSS specialist at the Norwalk Community School district in Iowa, and to explore what these supports look like in practice.
