We all value the opportunity to connect with other educators, to have the chance to share ideas, enrich thinking and bring a renewed sense of vibrancy to our programs.
Do You See What I See? is about connecting teachers in an online learning community and building a strong professional network to exchange ideas. Over 6 live sessions, across 7 months we will journey together as we investigate the relationship between the “thinking child” and the “thinking teacher”. Beginning with the idea of “noticing”, these sessions are highly practical and will simply call upon you to draw upon your everyday design with young children.
Each session will be shaped around a big idea, preparation will simply involve sharing an image via the online learning platform with the group that speaks to this idea for you. Respecting your professional insights, these learning circles centre on engaging in professional conversations, and each session will build on and be connected to the last.
Involvement in the Do You See What I See? learning community will strengthen your teaching as you bring your own language, creativity and insights to this experience. Educators will be provided with a journal to reflect, jot down ideas and document their shared journey. Genuine relationships and real connections are central to this learning community, and for that reason the opportunity will be made available to have 1:1 follow-up conversations with the facilitator throughout this sustained learning program.
Live sessions will occur on the first Tuesday of each month from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Participants will also have to option to communicate with each other through a private forum throughout the year.
