Cohort Choices

We recognise that participants need common spaces to share their experiences & extend their learning. This year at Learning2, we will form cohorts of participants organised by curriculum/common interest groupings. On sign-up, we will ask participants to nominate a cohort they want to ‘hang out with’ at the conference.

The cohort concept will be facilitated by a cohort facilitator and supported by two face-to-face (f2f) opportunities at the conference to establish those vital personal connections. The cohort facilitator will promote sharing and collaboration in the cohort so that cohort members can place what they have learned within the context of their positions as well as to strengthen their connections across the region. If you are interested in getting involved and facilitating a cohort, please be sure to indicate this on your registration form.

HOW TO SELECT YOUR COHORT UPON REGISTRATION :

Choose the cohort which most closely matches your current role.  There may be more than one match, in which case the decision may be difficult.  (For example, you may teach both Language Arts and Humanities, or you may be a STEM Coordinator, Technology Facilitator and teacher of robotics.)  A math coach may want to join a cohort of math teachers or a cohort of learning coaches. We may need to adjust the cohort you are assigned to based on the number of attendees.
