All pre-conference workshops will be held at the Queen Mary on Monday, July 16, 2018. Workshop times and durations vary, so please see descriptions below for full details. Fees cover all workshop materials.


Reflecting on Practice - Blended Coaching Workshop

9:00 am to 5:00 pm | Cost: $65

Queen Mary - King's View Room

Facilitated by Lynn Tran, Lawrence Hall of Science


The RoP Blended Coaching Workshop blends in-person and online interactions. Participants meet in-person for one day, then online for four meetings over the subsequent 3-4 months. 

 As with all RoP Coaching Workshops, participants will:

  1. learn about the latest research on learning and teaching;
  2. become familiar with the philosophy and design of the Reflecting on Practice program, including experience several of the activities and discussions from the program;
  3. connect with other RoP Facilitators from around the country.


 Upon completion, participants receive the comprehensive Reflecting on Practice curriculum and supporting materials. You become RoP Facilitators, and can implement the program with educators at your institution, at your own pace, to continue learning with your colleagues.

Box lunch is included.
