Growth in the Learning Environment

Towards the end of creating a positive Learning Environment, I’ve identified progress towards goals from Practicum I:

Goal 1: Inclusion, and creating safe, open classrooms where everyone can experience their own success:

  • Encouraging and using “risk taking” language for students – reinforcing that it’s okay to make mistakes
  • Have taken PD courses around mental health and vulnerable learners with MORE

Goal 2: Understanding the relationship of the physical environment to the teaching and learning space, incorporating accessible design and creating a space that supports a diversity of learners,

  • Adopted a desk-free classroom with frequently rotating seating space
  • Incorporated student feedback and accommodation requests into designing the learning space for individual and collective optimization
