EdVisions hosted session descriptions:


Writing the Book on Personalized Learning

Steven Rippe, Director of Hope Survey and Organization Development and Nicole Luedtke, Advisor at Valley New School (Appleton, WI)

The Personal Learning Plan is a universal learning approach cultivated by educators and students. It is unique because everyone develops it by and for themselves. In this mindset we move away from assignments to generation, streamlining and executing and utilizing our development forever. The personal learning plan is the center hub of the school. It teaches us to identify and pursue meaningful goals. We realize our ability to engage in self-transformation. Come and learn how!


Unlocking the new Hope Survey: Creating and measuring social emotional growth and school culture

Steven Rippe, Director of Hope Survey and Organization Development

Join us as we discuss how to create your ideal school culture and practical tools to assess and promote social emotional growth. We will provide a brief overview of the Hope Survey for students and introduce the Hope Survey for adults. We will then demonstrate how to easily tap into data and reports that help you personalize interventions that will take your school to the next level.


Teacher Ownership and Democratic Governance

Krissy Wright, Director of Professional Development

We will discuss a model where the employees “own” and are responsible for specific services such as the learning program, administration, professional development, evaluation and daily facilities maintenance. We will look how this inspires students and stakeholders to engage in the school community.


Developing Future Ready Skills through Profession-Based & Project-Based Learning

Dr. Lisa Snyder, Executive Director

Are your students ready for the global economy? Learn how project-based learning can be enhanced with the integration of career-focused, immersive experiences that allow students to explore the critical skills and dispositions needed in a rapidly changing workforce. Discover how high schools are incorporating mentoring, internships and group projects along with their corporate sponsors to help students explore career pathways, develop critical skills like collaboration, creativity and critical thinking and learn through real-world problems and projects.
