IBSA Webinar: Designing for Learner Agency
The following questions will guide our thinking:
- Why do we want to design for learner agency?
- What is learner agency and how do we empower our learners to take ownership and agency over their learning through the design thinking process?
- How do we design curriculum and instruction to promote learner agency?
In this highly interactive, professional learning workshop, Educators will be encouraged to share their experiences to construct their own knowledge and understanding through small discussions and group work and have the opportunity to create practical artefacts for their context.
This session will adopt a social constructivist learning approach.
