LLI Florida is currently seeking innovative teachers to present and lead sessions focusing on student-centered, teacher-facilitated practices. Fishbowl classrooms are active learning sessions that provide optimal settings to observe, discuss, and reflect on practical applications and methodologies. Presenters will create a collaborative space where children of all primary ages can engage in lifelong learning strategies.
PROPOSAL DEADLINE IS JANUARY 15, 2018
Active learning made visible: Presenters provide the philosophy and rationale for the learning process in the first 10 minutes of the session. This will transition to an active 45-minute teaching session with students from Miami Country Day School while attendees observe. After the lesson, the presenter leads a 20-minute debrief. This is an opportunity for presenters to facilitate deeper reflection and discussion among professionals observing the session. Facilitators may also wish to share resources, references, research, and professional literature that have influenced their practice and support the presentation.
Presenters may choose to host a conversation, workshop, or session without students. Presenters are invited to submit proposals on any topic related to innovative or student-centered learning, and we encourage potential presenters to engage their audience in discussion and active learning that goes beyond traditional direct instruction. Topics that stimulate innovative philosophies and practices will engage participants in discussion that extends outside the bounds of traditional direct instruction. Presenters can consider the resources, references, research, and professional literature that have influenced their practice and support the presentation.
Presenters selected for LLI Florida will be entitled to a 60% discount on registration ($150). You will be provided information on registration upon notice of proposal acceptance.
