Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Audience: Teachers, Instructional Coaches, and Administrators

Dates: 6/17/2020 to 6/18/2020

The Harvard Graduate School of Education research based Project Zero features various frameworks and tools that enable teachers to look at teaching analytically, develop new approaches to planning and make informed decisions about instruction. Participants will explore ways to deepen student engagement; encourage learners to think critically and creatively; and make learning and thinking visible. In a Project Zero classroom, teachers are also learners who model intellectual curiosity and rigor, interdisciplinary and collaborative inquiry, and sensitivity to the ethical and aesthetic dimensions of learning. The ESCCO will be working with researchers from the Project Zero team at the Harvard Graduate School of Education to develop the two day program. The conference will include one or more plenaries (large, conference style presentations by Project Zero researchers), some larger workshops facilitated by PZ researchers, and many smaller workshops facilitated by educators using PZ ideas in their classrooms and other educational settings. Our OH conference will be centered around the throughline questions similar to those framing recent Project Zero Classroom 5-day summer institutes held at Harvard. They include: 1. What are the roles of reflection and assessment in learning? 2. How might we nurture creativity and critical thinking? 3. How can we design for and with a variety of learners and contexts? 4. What does deeper learning and thinking look, sound and feel like in a classroom, a school and a community? This two day conference held on the campus of New Albany Plain Local Schools. A full conference schedule will be available in spring 2020.
