Professional Development

Educators are faced with the challenge of preparing students for a changing 21st century world. LSF workshops focus on seven interrelated strategies from our Connecting the Dots resource to create learning experiences that put students in the driver’s seat to propel their own learning, leading to responsible active citizenship.

We welcome you to our community of educational leaders who are transforming learning. Each professional development event brings together educators to share their interests and experiences while advancing their practice and that of their colleagues.  We look forward to learning with you.

Testimonials

Our Professional Development Events Get Great Reviews

I feel like I have a deeper understanding of the inquiry process because I was directly experiencing it in the institute.

Using the professional inquiry approach in the LSF/NC institute was enlightening. You feel safe, included and respected.

The chance to work with the facilitators and everyone who came to the session was inspiring.

It was the best learning experience for Inquiry-based leaning. I am now clear and more comfortable implementing inquiry while incorporating nature.
