Join us to learn about applying the STAGES adult development model to teaching and learning and improving student outcomes. STAGES is a research-based framework that reveals important new understandings about how human beings grow throughout life. It helps us support and maximize our students’ learning and development, as well as make sense of where we are in our own personal and professional development as educators.
In this experiential workshop, participants practice recognizing developmental patterns in students, how to design developmentally responsive curriculum and assessment, and how to work more effectively and transformatively with the developmental diversity found in any classroom. This workshop will focus on high school through post-secondary teaching and learning.
Practically, STAGES gives us a road map for our individual and collective human potential and how to teach and develop curriculum in ways that maximize this potential. It also offers a reciprocal understanding of one’s own development as an educator and how this interacts with students’ developmental needs.
Washington State Clock Hours and Continuing Education Quarter Credits are Available at the 400 and 500 level upon Request
