Murray on Personal & Authentic: Designing Learning Experiences that impact a lifetime.

Personal & Authentic: Designing Learning Experiences that Impact a Lifetime
Thomas C. Murray

Recent work in the learning sciences has helped paint a detailed picture of what it is kids need to thrive. Grounded in relationships, and built upon a culture for learning, personal and authentic experiences respect the hidden stories within each child and are learner-centered by design. These experiences are filled with moments of awe, and the learning is inherently relevant and contextualized. Appropriate levels of flexibility in pace and path are granted so that agency can develop, while authentic feedback ensures fidelity in the learning process. To support the personal and authentic experience, spaces and tools are leveraged in evidence-based, meaningful ways. 

Throughout this summit, leaders will:

  • Reflect on their own leadership and what aspects help or hinder those they lead
  • Explore ways to create cultures of innovation and risk-taking
  • Explore a framework to identify practical ways to make learning Personal & Authentic
  • Identify issues related to equity in access and opportunity
  • Leave motivated to continue the needed work in your school or district moving forward.

The work is hard, but our kids are worth it! Join Thomas C. Murray for this hands-on, engaging summit!
