Using Improvisation to Engage All Learners
Inspired Teaching Institutes are FREE, improvisation-based professional development for teachers and school leaders. They move participants beyond passive professional learning: Inspired Teaching teaches the way people learn best – with our whole selves.
All Institute sessions, both in-person and online, are fully interactive. Online sessions are “cameras on” and “mics unmuted” so participants can get to know and interact with one another. Participants are not going to do a lot of sitting and listening! We encourage you to sign up with colleagues to deepen learning and create space for growing ideas as a community. You are guaranteed to leave these sessions feeling energized and ready to try something new.
Certificates of completion will be provided for all participants. DC Public School teachers get PLUs through the Washington Teachers’ Union for participation.
Inspired Teaching was a great recharge for me, and it breathed new life into my curriculum and teaching practice. My most important goal as a teacher has always been getting my students to be the ones doing the thinking, so Inspired Teaching’s Instigator of Thought framework really resonated with me. After Institute, I’ve tried to move away from any type of lecture where students are only sitting and listening, and you can see the results in my class.
