Think of Learnership in the same way as you’d think about leadership, or craftsmanship. It denotes a skilful act - the skill of learning.

As an experienced teacher you’ve honed your craft over many years. You know how to teach and you’re good at it. But quality teaching isn’t always enough.

Learning is the product of what the teachers does AND what the learner does. If our students aren’t engaging effectively in the learning process, then even the best teachers face an uphill battle!

Too often teachers are left feeling like we are dragging our students through the learning process. We set appropriate challenges, give formative feedback, scaffolding learning, find and correct students' mistakes. Too many of our students are passive learners.

In this webinar, you’ll unpack James’ Learnership Matrix, identify the type of learners you have in your classroom based on how they respond to challenges, their relationship with their Habits of Mind, how they gather information from feedback and mistakes and how they invest their time and energy.

You'll then learn how to guide your students in becoming more skilful learners. Freeing up your time and energy in the process


This webinar is suited to any teacher or leader interested in helping students engage more effectively and more skilfully in the learning process.
