Lobman and Lowenheim Lead Symposium on Teaching Adults

Faculty Carrie Lobman, Ed.D., and Gwen Lowenheim led a symposium on Teaching Adults, attended by adult educators who teach in universities, community based organizations, language schools, hospitals and corporate education programs. Workshop participants performed as both learners and teachers in the course of several interactive performances and improv exercises. Says Lobman, who serves as the Institute’s director of pedagogy and leader of its Revolutionary Conversation adult education forums:

We engaged teachers in the activity of creating collaborative learning environments where everyone is supported to learn and grow. Our experience is that the best (developmental) learning environments are inclusive and conversational. Students are engaged as active contributors and co-creators of their learning. We’ve found that this orientation maximizes the potential for discovery.
