Making Learning Visible

At LLI Southwest, faculty leaders want to empower their colleagues through hands-on understanding of the learning process. Visible learning is seeing engaged students and teachers interacting in real time and imagining transformation in their own school.

Making learning visible means not only talking about best strategies, but actually witnessing the practice together. Come see a true PD experience where students and professionals can learn together.

Our Unique Fishbowl Sessions

LLI Southwest is one of the only conferences for educators that actually shows you how innovative strategies work in a classroom. By allowing educators to propose lesson plans, we provide a group of age-appropriate students as a class while attendees observe. Thereafter, a reflection period allows observers to discuss and consider these strategies, giving them the tools to unlock the power of student centered learning in their own schools.

There will be four blocks of fishbowl sessions on Thursday, Feb 22nd and three blocks of active learning sessions on Friday, Feb. 23rd, with 20 minute reflection periods between each session. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided during the conference.

LLI Southwest Keynotes

Matt Scully - Director of Digital Integration & Innovation - Providence Day School
Ryan Welsh - Design Strategist - Providence Day School










Matt and Ryan were born and raised in different places. They accumulated lots of degrees at different times and locations.  Fortunately, they eventually joined forces at Providence Day School.  With the help of lots of other people, they helped to form Providence Day’s Center for the Art and Science of Teaching, Learning, and Entrepreneurship.  Since then, they have both been working to mind the gap between who people are and who they aspire to be as teachers, students, and schools.  Their collective areas of expertise include, but are note limited to:

  • curriculum & instruction
  • innovation
  • digital integration
  • marrying up
  • sketchnotes
  • comic books
  • 20th century poetry and poetics
  • Pittsburgh
  • hot wings
  • craft beer
  • field hockey
  • and network optimization  

They could not be more excited to see if those areas of expertise can be of service to the active, visible learners at LLI Southwest.
