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.

Session 1: Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022
