15757 Design for Math Engagement and Mastery Through Experiential Learning in Cullowhee

When: April 19-22

What if rather than hearing your students say, “I’m not good at math,” you could hear them say “math is one of my favorite classes!”? This workshop is for high schoolmath teachers ready to shift the paradigm for engaging teaching and learning through Design Thinking and the core elements of Experiential Learning such as authentic Problem, Place, and Project Based Learning. We will ground our work in student empathy, an asset-based lens, and proven, learner-centered strategies that help restore the joy, wonder, and relevance of math, while also enabling an increase in rigor and student depth of knowledge. Participants will work in a collaborative environment to develop a working knowledge of the design process and elements of High Quality PBL, as well as leverage a wealth of proven resources that help make math instruction less siloed and abstract and more connected to applications that students care about. Come to NCCAT with one or more ideas of how to design an experiential learning culture in your classroom and school.

15758 Maskerspace + STEM + PBL = Deep Learning in Cullowhee

When: May 3-6

Do you either have an underutilized makerspace or are thinking of developing a makerspace? Are you finding that your STEM efforts are not generating the kind of interdisciplinary joy and wonder of learning that you see at other schools? Have you considered exploring authentic PBL instead of just “doing projects?” This workshop will answer these questions and more by providing middle and high school teachers the opportunity for a deep dive into the intersection of each of these proven strategies that drive relevance, engagement, and deeper learning. Find out how you can leverage the power of an active learning environment in your own classroom and school – one that amplifies the best traditions of progressive, constructivist education and depends more on a mindset of problem solving and sustained inquiry and less on expensive equipment and technology.
