The '20 Opps' Workshop
Participate in 20 interactive examples of moments in teaching where the teacher can have a transformative experience. Each is a practical example where you experience an opportunity to model truly transformative learning for students. The activities of the workshop anticipate that each participant will be able to perform the following.
- Intuitive Teaching where the teacher is open to new ideas while telling.
- Teacher / Student Reversal where the teacher is open to learning from the student by active listening.
- True Learning Modeling where the teacher experiences true gratitude for the student, becoming a model of the highest form of a true teacher.
