During these unprecedented times, educators and facilitators are working hard to adapt and innovate in remote and hybrid learning environments. Support, co-creative problem-solving, and collaboration with other educators is needed now more than ever before. In response, Jen Stanchfield has adapted her Inspired Educator, Engaged Learner workshop into an online professional development series offering a combination of practical tools and techniques, mentoring, and moral support.
Join this dynamic program and fill your toolbox with experiential, brain-based methods to inspire, motivate, and increase meaningful social-emotional learning and academic or training engagement. Build a positive, connected, and supportive remote classroom or group culture as we begin the 2021 amidst this challenging teaching, group development, and learning environment.
This workshop offers:
- Engaging community building, connection, dialogue, and reflection activities designed to enhance academic, group development and social-emotional learning and promote buy-in, voice, and choice
- Facilitated time to connect, collaborate and problem-solve with other educators who are facing similar challenges and successes
- A collaborative exploration of methods to teach, practice, and assess academics in a trauma-informed and equitable way while cultivating communication, collaboration, problem-solving self and, social awareness, and reflection
- Exploration of the role of the educator/facilitator as a guide, and the importance of flexibility, attitude, adaptation, and awareness of group and individual needs and differences
Enliven remote and hybrid academic, training, and social-emotional content delivery and assessment with active, student-centered participation techniques to enhance involvement and retention for learners of all ages. Leave this dynamic series with practical methods, creative inspiration, positive connections, networking, and support from teaching and training peers from around the globe.
The workshop includes a choice of one of Jen's books or facilitation tools. In order to encourage collaborative learning and community building, each series/cohort group's capacity is 20 participants. This program can also be customized for existing educator groups, program, or school-wide faculty and staff team-building and professional development.

"Time flew by during this session! I was actively engaged the whole time and took away tools I will use right away with my groups."
"Great info. Also, the breakout rooms were structured enough to not be awkward. The introverts thank you...
"This is just what I needed! I put the entry activity, breakout group techniques, and dialogue sparking ideas to use with my college students right after the workshop ended!"
"I look forward to these sessions every week! I savor the time in our workshops. It has truly helped me serve my students. My 5th graders LOVED the Team Tally activity you showed us. Thank you for helping me feel more confident about facilitating breakout groups in Zoom."
I LOVE the ways we were able to interact with each other (even virtually). These are always my favorite workshops to attend!!
