Scaling Your Teaching
July 7, 2021
Hosted by Dr. Sharon Jones
To scale up means to expand. But when in practice, it is very easy to confuse scaling up with generalizing. Scaling up teaching is not the same as providing the individualized care to all students, (which is simply not possible) or to give the same amount of care and time to all students. It’s about expanding the care that you give to individual students and building a strategy that can accommodate the number, diversity, and learning styles of all your students at the same time. Today we chat about how to start scaling your teaching and learning. In the first half, I provide several ideas on how to scale including using my new innovation journal, Reigniting Your Spark. In the second half of our show, Renee Houser joins me to dig into scaling with our mental capacity and how our new venture, Living Your Learning is meeting a need for just in time professional development (https://livingyourlearning.education/) Purchase a journal! https://thedotconsulting.co/books/ Follow us at Living Your Learning @livurlearning
