Teachers are leaving the classroom. Students are running the school. How do we turn things around? How do we prepare teachers for the challenges of teaching in today’s world and in the future? Furthermore, how do we prepare students for the unknowns this future will inevitably bring? The answer… Design Innovation. We must change the design of education in order to create a learning environment from the perspective of the 21st century student with empathy, restorative practice and advanced problem-solving skills. We must also make the shift from centering the teacher to centering the learner during the UDL Design Process when applied to learning environments and lesson design. In this session, participants will learn how to design learning environments that are restorative instead of punitive, empathetic instead of restrictive and innovative instead of instructional so that we can bring about the positive shifts we want to see in the world.
