Integrating Spiritual Formation in the Christian School and Classroom

This full-day workshop explores the relationship between faith and practice within the Christian school environment. Throughout the day, we analyze and discuss the historical and cultural factors that have led to the current school practices. We also develop a paradigm of spiritual growth that encourages both students and staff to take on Christ-like characteristics.

Implementing Differentiated Instruction for Mastery Learning

Successful differentiated instruction provides a range of approaches to learning in order to make it relevant for all students. The approach modifies the learning plan without differentiating expectations, which allows academically diverse learners to achieve success. This workshop provides educators with the tools they need to embrace differences among students and develop multiple options for learning. Throughout the day, we examine strategies that allow students to absorb information, make sense of ideas, and express what they learn so all students are actively participating in and mastering learning.

Deconstructing Bloom's Taxonomy for Use in the 21st Century Classroom

Bloom's Taxonomy of Education Objectives has been a foundation for planning effective instruction since 1956. When written well, instructional goals and objectives assist educators in identifying course content, organizing instruction, and helping students achieve course expectations. In this half-day workshop, we review the hierarchy of educational objectives, identify ways to incorporate Bloom's Taxonomy into the lesson planning process, and create educational objectives that challenge students to move from the most basic cognitive skills toward learning that is more complex.

Rethinking the Classroom: Transforming Education with Blended Learning

Blended learning is one of the fastest-growing and most successful instructional models for delivering flexible learning options to today's learners. In this one-day workshop, we define blended learning, reflect upon current practices, and introduce concrete strategies for implementing various models along the blended spectrum into the classroom. Join us to discover the five models of blended learning and determine which one is the best for your classroom.

Empowering Digital Leadership and Maximizing Its Potential in Education

Students today are "digital natives" in search of ways to connect the relevance of school and life using common technology elements. In this one-day workshop, we develop a strategy for incorporating technology into the classroom and discuss ways to help your digital learners make the connections that unlock their educational potential by giving them the opportunities to communicate, collaborate, and express themselves through technology.
