No student fits into a standard, one-size-fits-all box of core content. This engaging and unforgettable experience will leave you motivated to uncover, foster, and amplify the unique gifts and talents that our students possess. Transformational teachers serve the whole child, honoring each child’s obvious and undiscovered talents. Thus, we focus on Self, Heart (passion), how to Inspire and Navigate to create the Exceptional people our students are meant to be.
The COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly changing the way students are learning around the world, especially at U.S. colleges and universities. As part of Walden’s mission of advancing positive social change, we are continuing our Talks For Good series, which is designed to inspire action and provide a platform for leaders in education to share their thoughts and ideas.
