“Introduction to Fenner’s Lending Library”
Join Sam Ansaldi and Liz Roxberry as you dive deep into student directed learning. You will spend time with other educators as you define and develop strategies of using this pedagogy as a means of supporting active learning in your classroom. Participants will end their day by exploring some of the more than fifteen hundred provocations, invitations, and resources that Fenner has assembled as part of the PNC Resource and Lending Library available to you as early learning professionals in the Capital region. This seminar is designed for those interested in enrolling in the lending library and will offer insight on navigating the online circulation portal.
