Designing Structures for Modern Learning

This workshop will examine expanding the options for each of the four structures that make modern learning possible: schedules, learning spaces, student grouping, and personnel configurations. We will look at the relationship between these structures, and how to research and develop programs tailored to the student population in your school. Action plans that include strategies for creating contemporary learning environments will be developed on site.

 

Day 1

On the first day, we will discuss in depth the four program structures - space (both physical and virtual); time frames as currency, student communities, and faculty ecosystems. We'll compare 'old school' structures to classic and contemporary models, and begin drafting programs that make modern learning possibilities a reality.

Possible Moves - Areas of Focus For Your School Program

  • Learning Spaces - physical spaces, architectural plans, remodeling and re-purposing existing spaces
  • Furniture Design - making choices based on student interaction and concentration
  • Physical Location - making use of the school property and resident community
  • Virtual Learning Spaces - considering the range of options and criteria for quality selection
  • Budgets - the realities of financial constraints and decision-making
  • Scheduling - valuing time as currency, and understanding the requirements of varied learning experiences
  • Grouping Patterns for Learners – non-graded/ multi-age grouping by interests, and a look at international practices
  • Personnel Configurations – examining roles beyond departments - multiple affiliations for faculty and talent versus role based instruction; cyber faculty participation is also discussed

Day 2

Small group work and 1-on-1 coaching on the second day allow participants the time and guidance needed to develop a strategy for research, analysis of current conditions and implementation of new program structures. Each participant and school group will have a personalized consulting and access to resources needed to construct bold new learning environments for modern learners.
