The NWO Symposium is a very popular professional development opportunity in the region for K-12 pre-service and in-service teachers, graduate students, school administrators, and higher education faculty.
2013 NWO Symposium is featuring a keynote presentation by Alfie Kohn
Overhauling the Transmission Model: Teaching your students to be active meaning makers
The traditional “bunch o’ facts” model of education applied to STEM subjects consists of filling students with information about decimals and variables, cells and minerals. The process typically relies on lectures, worksheets, grades, tests, and homework. But our challenge is to help students think like scientists and mathematicians so they can actively make sense of ideas -- and, ideally, to take pleasure in doing so. In his keynote address, Alfie Kohn invites us to reflect on how we can bring about just such a shift in our classrooms.
Alfie Kohn writes and speaks widely on human behavior, education, and parenting. His twelve books include PUNISHED BY REWARDS (1993), THE SCHOOLS OUR CHILDREN DESERVE (1999), THE CASE AGAINST STANDARDIZED TESTING (2000), UNCONDITIONAL PARENTING (2005), THE HOMEWORK MYTH(2006), and, most recently, FEEL-BAD EDUCATION (2011).
