Project Zero Perspectives: How and Where Does Learning Thrive?
February 13-15, 2014
Here’s a conference in Memphis that focuses on international education. From their description:
Founded in 1967 and recognized as one of the world’s leading professional development programs for educators, Project Zero, in conjunction with the Center for the Advancement and Study of International Education (CASIE), will bring internationally-renowned researchers to a conference co-hosted by the Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence on the campus of Presbyterian Day School in Memphis. CASIE has partnered with Project Zero over the past four years to bring financially accessible and highest-quality professional development conferences to select cities around the world. The Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence is a partnership between Presbyterian Day School (PDS) and the University of Memphis whose purpose is to provide world-class professional development to educators at all types of schools. The Martin Institute is housed on the PDS campus.
Educators from around the world are invited to learn from Project Zero researchers and practitioners. The Project Zero team includes some of the world’s leading researchers, writers, thinkers and leaders in the field of teaching and learning. Their work includes investigations into the nature of intelligence, understanding, thinking, creativity, ethics and other essential aspects of human learning. The professional learning from Harvard’s Project Zero has proven to be transformational for teachers and has direct, practical and powerful application in the classroom.
With its theme and overarching question of How & Where Does Learning Thrive? the conference will invite educators to reflect deeply on how they design and facilitate learning for their students.
