  • Reflecting on Practice: An introduction to the community. Wednesday, March 28, 2018 from 1-5pm. Do you and your team want to learn about the latest research on learning, but not quite sure where to begin? Are you curious about how to build a sense of community among your colleagues, with common language and understanding on learning? Do you wonder how reflective practice is advancing our field? And in what ways it can improve your programs and learning materials? Have you heard of Reflecting on Practice and wondered what it’s about and how it can work for your team? Here’s your chance. We offer a half-day workshop of hands-on activities and focused research discussion from the program that may push you to new ways of thinking. We will share stories of how engaging in reflective practice builds community and capacity. RSVP Required
