TEP Innovation Institute featuring Dr. David Betancourt

The Innovation Institute is a daylong event that will take place Monday, May 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The event will feature presentations and panel discussions from CAS faculty members who have participated in TEP sponsored initiatives, as well as a keynote lecture and workshop led by Dr. David Betancourt.

Dr. Betancourt’s workshop will explore expansive education in depth. Is there more to education than content delivery, test results, and degrees? Expansive education champions pedagogy that embraces the concepts of learning dispositions, habits of mind, and expandable intelligence as central to the engagement and success of students in and beyond their formal educational years. The focus on this professional learning experience will be on the ten choices that expansive educators make towards engaging and creating transformative educational experiences for students that transcend the confines of the classroom walls.
