Event Details

Louisiana Workshop:  Reflecting on Practice (RoP)

The Reflecting on Practice (RoP) program is a professional learning program for informal science educators. It is designed for institutions to adopt and implement with their own staff so that all educators in the organization can participate and learn together. The goal of the program is to advance the informal science education field by cultivating communities of learners among its professionals. The program has three primary objectives:

  1. To build shared language and understanding among professionals by relating research to practice.
  2. To engage practitioners in habits of reflection, including observing their own teaching, as a means to develop their practice and make it public.
  3. To nurture a tradition of continued professional learning among participants, and thereby build a professional learning community

The RoP Coaching workshop will take place January 17-19, 2018 at the Audubon Nature Institute’s Nature Center in New Orleans.  To register please visit our webpage: http://missionaransas.org/reflection-practice

The Coaching Workshop introduces the ideas, activities and philosophy of the program, and of course model the teaching practices underlying the program. Workshop participants continue their learning by implementing/teaching the program with their staff at their home institutions.

The attached flyer has additional information, such as workshop details and logistics, as well as how to register. For more information about Reflecting on Practice and the RoP network, please visit: http://reflectingonpractice.org/
