Co-Labs for Innovation

This isn’t your typical PD.

In Co-Labs, you work in a small group with educators from different schools to focus on a problem of practice that is important and timely for you and your students. You’ll:

  • Work smarter, not harder: Connect to the best resources in smart and efficient ways.

  • Take action: Develop and implement a plan to try something new in your classroom.

  • Stay connected and get support: Join the team to celebrate successes, ask for advice, pose questions, and stick with it.

Fall 2018 Co-Labs

 

Mindfulness & Self-Care for Educators

Deep breaths and moments of reflection aren’t just helpful for students. Join a team of educators looking to explore and experiment with Mindfulness practices that promote their own sustainability, productivity, and balance.

This Co-Lab will meet in Cambridge (Kendall Square) on Wednesdays. Click here for a detailed schedule.

 

Exploring Bias

Do you wonder about the ways our perceptions impact the students we teach? Join other educators looking to dig deeper into the ways bias plays out in classroom experiences from curricular materials to student groupings to instructional practices.

This Co-Lab will meet in Boston (State St) on Mondays (except Veteran’s Day). Click here for a detailed schedule.
