Centering the Learners in Place-Based Education

With a place-based approach, learning can be personally relevant to students and enable student agency while allowing a teacher to be the guide or facilitator instead of the holder of all information. In this virtual workshop, explore and discuss how the learner-centered principle of place-based education can support a personalized approach and student social-emotional learning.
