About the Series



Series Structure

This exploration into learning theory will be carried out in a series of eight weekly workshops. The first workshop will set the stage for the series by inviting participants to reflect on their own beliefs about learning, and to discover the importance of looking at learning again and again throughout their teaching careers. Each following workshop will feature a different educator and his or her learning theory. In addition to interviews with the featured educator, programs will include videoclips of classrooms in which the theories are being practiced, and discussions about the impact and the outcomes of such practices.

Each of the eight workshops will be two hours in length -- a one-hour broadcast sandwiched between two 30-minute Site Investigations. These discussion/activity sessions will introduce and extend the featured learning theories and provide a forum for participants to discuss their application in the classroom. Weekly homework assignments will promote continued thinking between workshops and help participants document their progress throughout the series.

Workshop participants are encouraged to communicate and share ideas with teachers across the country on the LOOKING AT LEARNING . . . AGAIN interactive Web site. The collective information exchanged via cyberspace will enrich and extend the weekly workshops, and the opportunity to engage in discourse with a national community of teachers will greatly enhance the overall value of the series for all participants.
