Creative Conversations

Calling All Conductors of Light!

WTS, in partnership with the Bay & Paul Foundations, presents a series of monthly, playful, hour-long explorations. 

Creative Conversations: Teaching in Ways More Compatible with How Our Students Learn

>>>Registration for June 2nd, 3:30 PM Creative Conversation<<<

When: We’ll convene our sixth gathering on Wednesday, June 2nd from 3:30 – 4:30 for Wild Learning? Unpacking Learning Law #5: Expectations impact performance. All are welcome.

What: Bill Rich & Tim O’Leary, Co-Directors of What’s the Story? (WTS), will host this monthly series to help educators think through their operating systems–their habitual ways of thinking about teaching and learning–and offer ideas and resources for adopting a more brain-compatible approach to teaching and learning.

Our jumping-off point will be the blog post, Trust the Science: Using Brain-Based Learning to Upgrade Our Educational OS

How: Each session will begin with a brief and compelling overview of a law of learning, followed by small group, guided discussions.

  • How does this law play out in our setting?
  • What resources can we bring to this conversation?
  • What are some of our most pressing questions about teaching in ways more compatible with how our students learn?

Participants will leave with access to a range of resources, including access to WTS’ Instructional Team, to support the next steps. 

Creative Conversations are made possible by the Bay & Paul Foundations.
