Limited Capacity seats available

Do you see the potential that lies in every student being expected to publicly present their learning? Do you have a lot of questions when it comes to making it happen, and in particular scaling up this model in a large school or district? The logistical side of it all can boggle the mind. 

If this is you, come get unboggled!

Bring your logistical questions on the HOW of defenses of learning, and get some concrete solutions as well as guiding principles to apply to your own context. The session will focus on two case studies, and three speakers engaging with participant-generated questions.
