Welcome to ALF Summer 2018 at Heartwood
Who is this for?
What to expect?
Theory (5 Days)
Do you want to facilitate? To support self-directed learners in both individualizing their educations and building a healthy community? Or are you interested in the intersection of Agile and alternative education? Or finding tools and practices to adapt for your own project?
Join us for a four-day introduction to facilitation and Agile Learning! We’ll follow the rhythm Heartwood keeps during school days: morning intention-setting, daily exploring, then regrouping in the afternoon to reflect. Experienced facilitators will make offerings to share the theory and practices supporting Agile Learning Centers. Participants will be invited to make and request offerings based on personal interests and passions.
Practice (4 Days)
There's only so much theorizing to do. A huge part is experimenting, being iterative, and continuously growing and changing. So, these 5 days will consist of actually playing the part of facilitator and simulating a week of school. Students will be present and you will get the chance to practice the ideas we've talk about in the days prior.
**If you’re interested in becoming an ALC Network-recognized facilitator, the process continues with practice facilitating and a Peer-Review after this summer program. If you indicate an intention to become an ALF when applying to the program, a hosting facilitator will reach out to coordinate with you. **
