The Jennings Educator Institute, presented by the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, is a three-day workshop held over three separate Saturdays in the fall that is aimed to encourage, support and foster the development of teachers and their work in the classroom. Each ½ day workshop features networking, discussion, and a keynote speaker who is well-respected and well-known among educators in Ohio.
2022 Jennings Educators Institute
Deep Learning, Purposeful Teaching, Thinking that Matters
What does deep learning look like, and how do we get more of it? How can we be more intentional in advancing the capacities young people need for a highly ambiguous, rapidly changing world? How do we nurture deep learning with a focus on the whole child—and with attention to the whole-adults in our buildings? The 2022 Jennings Educators Institute, hosted at Kent State University, explores these questions and more. Through participatory sessions, educators will acquire strategies to cultivate creativity, critical thinking, trauma-informed approaches, and targeted capacities of thinking.
The three Saturday workshops will be held from 8 a.m. – noon on the dates listed below on Kent State’s campus. Attendance at all three workshops is required to become a Jennings Educators Institute Fellow.
