One of the secrets to student engagement is to make learning a physical process. Students are more likely to stay motivated to learn and persist through an activity when it gets them up and moving and puts them into action. In this Institute we will explore 8 different ways to infuse action into the learning process using improvisation, dance, creating with materials, physical games, and more. Active learning isn’t just the purview of elementary school - these activities are applicable across grades and subject areas!

PLEASE NOTE: We teach the way people learn best - with our whole selves. This means all of our sessions, both in-person and online are fully interactive. You're not going to do a lot of sitting and listening! Our online sessions are "cameras on" and "mics unmuted" so participants can get to know and interact with one another. We are often physically moving around whatever space we happen to be in but we ask participants to move and interact in the ways that work best for their bodies. Time flies in this environment and we guarantee you'll leave these sessions feeling energized and ready to try something new. We can't wait to learn with you!
