Fall Residency: Project Design for Deeper Learning
This residency is tailored for educators and school planning teams who will dive deeply into project based learning and the High Tech High design principles. We emphasize and explore how equity in schools can be achieved through well-designed PBL experiences. Workshops feature the development, analysis and critique of PBL plans and design principles. Participants engage with HTH teachers and students about their projects and learn ways to support both students and colleagues through processes of project tuning and critique. The Fall Residency is geared towards experienced educators and those new to project-based learning.
Optional: Improvement Science Pre-Conference (Oct 11, 2016)
Coaching for Improvement
Improvement Science (IS) is an emerging field in education that allows us to tackle persistent problems of practice and create more equitable learning environments for all students. During this highly interactive deep dive, we will explore elements, tools and strategies for coaching improvement work. We also dig into improvement work at HTH, serving as coaches to existing projects so that we can experience and unpack "coaching moves" that help support and push improvement work. This workshop is designed for change-makers at all levels—teachers, school/district leaders and K–12 students - who wish to build their own capacity to support improvement efforts.
