Make a Student-Centred Classroom [Part 1]

Make a Student-Centred Classroom [Part 1] | Teaching and Learning PD | Scoop.it
In 2016, I did a lot of posting and presenting on student-centred learning. I had great feedback and some supportive conversations about the obvious commonsense behind the approach. I've posted a number of guides and posters to help people understand the necessary components. But when the conversation on theory finishes, the first two questions are always:…

Searching for a deeper meaning in movement

Searching for a deeper meaning in movement | Teaching and Learning PD | Scoop.it
To love and teach movement because it is human and beautiful, full of its own meanings and its own absurdity, has been denied to us. We have had to struggle up-hill, like Sisyphus, to make movement something that it cannot be.
