Learning Network

Building on your ‘16-‘17 work, your ‘17-‘18 GVSU Learning Network lead by Dr. Richard Lemons will provide training in instructional rounding. Inspired by medical rounds used by physicians, instructional rounds develop the practice of observing, discussing, and analyzing teaching and learning. The goal of instructional rounds is observation and comparison, not feedback or evaluation.

Three of the five GVSU Learning Network sessions will be at GVSU-chartered schools where participants will conduct facilitated instructional rounds. Cohorts will not be grouped by elementary or secondary cohorts. The other sessions will be network-wide events held on GVSU campuses in Grand Rapids and Detroit.
