We are thrilled to announce the first in a series of our Idea Exchange Projects.
What is an Idea Exchange?
Short collaborative exchanges between professionals on a specific topic of interest. Idea Exchanges are collaborative, professional learning experiences. While each Idea Exchange is different, participants generally follow these four steps.1. Project Leaders share best practices - to ensure a common foundation for quality.
2. Participants share an example of how they apply those best practices in their professional life.
3. Participants review the examples and share Huddled feedback to one another, usually within the context of evaluating each of the best practices.
4. Participants review feedback, deepen their understanding, and determine what improvements (if any) need to be made.
Here's a short video to preview an Idea Exchange.
What do participants get from joining an Idea Exchange?
At the end of the Idea Experience, each participant walks away with an improved idea they can implement and put in action. Additionally, each will develop a stronger network of collaborative colleagues to take next steps after the Project.
What topics are covered by an Idea Exchange?
Almost anything. Our first Idea Exchange is focused on helping educators improve the quality of their PBL Authentic Assessments. Learn more about the PBL Exchange here. We are building out other Idea Exchanges and looking for Project Leaders.
Who is the Project Leader for each Idea Exchange?
Each Idea Exchange is led by an experienced and passionate professional, vetted by Huddle Up Learning. It's a great way to increase your professional network and learn from and with others. Interested in leading an Idea Exchange? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
