Event Details

 In this two-session workshop, participants will be introduced to thinking routines that were developed to foster a sensitivity to the design of systems as part of PZ’s Agency by Design research project. As our students engage with a myriad of complex systems every day, there are tools that can support them in teasing out the parts, people, and dynamics inherent in any system so that they can analyze, engage with, and even redesign systems. Participants will have the opportunity to try out thinking routines that support the mapping and analysis of systems and consider ways these routines and practices might support learning in their own context. The workshop will support educators working with learners from pre-K through secondary school as well as with all ages of adult learners.

Project Zero’s professional development programs are recognized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IB) as Category 3 PD, which can be used by IB educators worldwide to fulfill their ongoing requirements.
