Join us for a unique, engaging and informative education conference - Education and the Inquiring Mindset Enhancing Learning, Teaching, and Accomplishment on Wednesday July 27 in Princeton, New Jersey. Hosted by Dr. Marilee Adams and the Inquiry Institute.
Explore with us how the Inquiring Mindset in Education can make a difference in Teaching, learning and accomplishment.
Students with an active Inquiring Mindset are motivated, curious, and engaged learners. They ask questions that naturally reinforce critical thinking, problem-solving, and accomplishment — regardless of grade level or subject.
The purpose of the conference is to introduce the concept and tools of the Inquiring Mindset (IM) and how these perspectives and skills support success and satisfaction in both learning and teaching.
Participants will take away practices and tools that:
Morning: Keynote speaker, Dr. Marge Schiller on “Appreciative Inquiry: Lessons from the Field for Strength-Based Classrooms and Schools” and Dr. Marilee Adams on “Question Thinking Theory and Tools for Strengthening the Inquiring Mindset”
Lunch: Speaker Kathy Telban, M.ED, CPT, SPHR, on “The Role of the Inquiring Mindset in Supporting Secondary and Postsecondary Curriculum and Assessment Alignment”
Afternoon: Breakout Workshops — “Hands on” workshops exploring practical applications, skills, and tools of the Inquiring Mindset for:
21st Century Skills in Learning, Life, and Business • Teaching as Facilitating Learning •
Coaching and Mentoring Teachers and Educational Leaders • Professional Learning Communities
You will also meet and network with other educators who consider 21st century skills and inquiry-based learning of central importance for accomplishment and life-long learning.
