DREAMING BIGGER: PERSONALIZING PACE, PLACE & TIME

October 23, 2018

A McDowell Salon Series will take place in North Battleford on Wednesday, November 21 at 7 p.m. at John Paul II Collegiate (1491 97th Street). The conversation will include Lindell Gateley (ELA teacher), Jean Fauchon (Student Services teacher), Carlo Hansen (principal), Ashaun Pusey (graduate) and Ian Krips (Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation).

Through a roundtable discussion, the team will be sharing results from their research project funded by the McDowell Foundation. The project, entitled Time, Pace, Place: Using Flexible Design and Delivery to Support Learners, focuses on how adjusting space, time or place of learning can support students in acquiring high school credits. This presentation will move beyond the research project to share the experiences of teachers and students with flexible learning.

The Salon Series is designed to provide research teams with an opportunity to share their research and to engage community stakeholders in ongoing conversations about next steps. The McDowell Foundation has provided close to $2 million in funding supporting more than 283 teacher-led research projects for the benefit of Saskatchewan students.
