Workshop with Garfield Gini-Newman at IS Prague

ISP and CEESA would like to invite you to register for the “Sustaining inquiry through focused feedback” with Garfield Gini-Newman, Professor with the Department of Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning at OISE/University of Toronto.

This workshop will be held at the International School of Prague on November 15-16, 2019.

  • Nov 15: 8:30 – 16:00
  • Nov 16: 8:30 – 16:00

During the two-day workshop a broad framework for powerful sustained inquiry will be reviewed. The key elements of this approach include:

  • The development of rich engaging challenges that inspire learning
  • The use of learning launches to initiate inquiry
  • Shifting learning from the pursuit of correct answers to constructing sound answers
  • A focus on conceptual understanding, competence and transferable understanding
  • Focused and constructive peer and teacher guidance that supports iterative inquiry through offering choice rather than directed changes

The two-day workshop will be an excellent opportunity for teachers to develop practical and powerful materials for use with students engaged in sustained critical inquiry.
