Experiential Teaching and Learning - Slate Valley Unified School District Partners with Northeastern University
NExT The Network for Experiential Teaching and Learning | Summer Convening July 15-17
A group of educators from Slate Valley Unified School District are attending Northeastern University’s NExT conference (The Network for Experiential Teaching and Learning Summer Convening) from July 15-17 in Boston. This event marks the beginning of a dynamic partnership between Slate Valley educators and Northeastern University.
A Global Network with a Local Focus
The theme of the 2019 summer conference is “A Global Network with a Local Focus.” Attendees will collectively think big and act in their local contexts.
Northeastern University’s NExT conference presents an incredible opportunity for our group from Slate Valley to engage with a network of nearly 300 participants who live and teach across the globe. The goal for our group is to build their own networks from people they meet at NExT and further their understanding and application of experiential learning in our classrooms throughout the Slate Valley.
After the conference, our Slate Valley group will maintain and expand their network connections through engagement with the NExT Commons virtual platform. This platform provides access to resources, affinity groups, and seminars led by leaders in the field.
From the NExT Summer Convening brochure:
“At the 2019 Summer Convening, we will take everything from our last two years of growth, iteration, and reflection to engage and focus on shared ideas with direct application to your work: Presenters will INSPIRE by sharing their journeys; Members will CONNECT in large and small settings across intersections of work and identity; and participants will LEARN & CREATE--all aiming to improve our practices and create momentum to the experiential learning movement. Your presence and energy are impacting education in both large and small ways. We welcome you and hope you have a TRANSFORMATIVE experience with us here in Boston!”
