James Nottingham: The Learning Pit

Fri, Feb 28, 2020 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Have you ever felt stuck? Maybe you were working on something for a class and had to read, reread, and reread the information again but it still wasn't necessarily coming to you. After all, we learn a lot about ourselves when learning doesn't come easy. You were in the learning pit!

The Learning Pit explains why more challenge leads to enhanced learning. It helps educators structure lessons, and students challenge themselves. It shows educators how to develop questioning and facilitation techniques, and by going through the pit, it helps students to grow their resilience, decision-making and higher-order thinking skills. They will need a growth mindset!

Find out all about the Learning Pit from its creator, James Nottingham. This workshop will provide a clear path for engaging students in deep and meaningful learning. James will introduce the stages and steps, examples, tools and tactics to engage students in rigorous learning.
