UbD, extremely effective for lesson-planning at the classroom level, is rarely used for transformation planning at the school level. Administration will often skip the vision, or the ‘Why,’ and instead identify the mission, or the ‘What’—for example, ‘engage students in deeper learning’—and then move on to a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to get at the ‘How.’
Operating on the premise that personalization works just as well for adults as it does for students, this workshop will take a learner-centered approach to helping participants articulate their own ‘Whys.’ By the end of the session, attendees will have engaged in a series of protocols that they can use with their own stakeholders to establish a collective context and relevance for their work, and help identify the multiple strategies and practices that educators and students can use to engage in that work. In addition, the facilitator will share examples of one Vermont Supervisory Union’s vision and some examples of the methods they use to engage all students in deeper learning in order to realize that vision.
