How Schools and Classrooms Shape Learning and Development

Young people spend much of their days in schools and classrooms. How might these learning environments best provide positive experiences to support students’ learning and development? How and why might students within similar contexts have very different experiences by race, gender, or other social identities– and what then are the implications for educators? This keynote address will draw from research syntheses and student and teacher surveys to examine how young people make sense of daily schooling experiences, and how teacher practices and classroom environments shape students’ beliefs, behaviors, performance, and development. (1.5 CEUs)

Digging into the Science of Learning & Development

Research from a variety of disciplines (psychology, neuroscience, education, youth development) is converging on key principles in the science of learning and development, with direct application to schools and classroom practice. This work both validates many of the intuitions of educators and calls into question much of what is traditional in schools. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to dig into these ideas and discuss with your colleagues the implications for teaching and learning in K-12 settings. (2.0 CEUs)
