Learnership - the Skill of Learning
(Online PD Program)

To Be Delivered in the Spring of 2022 on the following dates:
February 17 and 24, March 3, 10, 17, 24, 2022
from 16:00 -17:30


How often do you hear “is this good enough”? or “is this going to count?” Too many of our students take the easy path, trying to get by on the bare minimum amount of work. Their idea of success is often about completing the work and getting it done, instead of challenging themselves to it done well. James Anderson, who for more than 20 years has been teaching frameworks that develop robust and enduring Growth Mindsets in the classroom, will help participants understand how learnership can improve student outcomes and save teachers time.

Dates and Time:   To be delivered in the Spring of 2022 - February 17 and 24, March 3, 10, 17 and 24 from 16:00 to 17:30

Essential Question:   How can we help students become more skillful learners?

Target Audience:   This is for teacher leaders, ideally with their teams, so that they can draw upon a variety of tools and strategies to support their team members to achieve:

  1. Improve student outcomes across the team; and
  2. Understand how to more effectively support classroom teachers that are overwhelmed.
