Description

For Parent & School-based Educators

Explore the concept and importance of Self-Directed Education (SDE), and what it looks like at different ages and in different settings. What is SDE? What does it mean to facilitate self-directed learning? What is the role of the facilitator relative to the role of the learner? How do you deal with goals you have for the learner, vs. the goals they have for themselves? How do you deal with the "baggage" that can come with being both parent and educator? How do you facilitate learning in areas you are not an expert in yourself?

In addition to discussing general concepts, we will leverage concrete examples from the experience of everyone attending to increase our understanding and improve our own practice.

You will leave with: Strong confidence to partner with learners; A clear vision of what SDE means to you in your personal context; Ability to advocate for SDE; Renewed vocabulary and valuable tools to support SDE.
