Empowering Education by Design - Cory Henwood We have learned a lot this past year about what is most meaningful in education. How will we move forward, what will we adopt and what will we leave behind? Will we seek to only develop skills for success on standardized tests or choose to build skills for success that are transferable no matter where life takes them? Will we seek to solely engage students in our curriculum or empower their passions to solve real problems they see in the world around us? I bet you value face-to-face relationships more than ever. How might you make personalized mentoring, feedback, and collaboration central to your classroom? It's ALL a matter of design. Retool how you do school with an upgraded set of values for education as we move from BC to AD (Before Coronavirus to After Disease). Leave UCET with an itch to employ these same empowering principles of design with your students so they can make their learning both more meaningful and memorable.
