About This Course


A course by Novak Educational Consulting

This course is designed to give educators a “meta-moment” to reflect and learn from a previous season of teaching, learning and/or leadership within their career in education. Too often we move from one thing to the next without taking time to discover and define how we have grown as people within our profession. We don’t often reflect on the ways our students have shaped us. We don’t mark the new skills and strategies we’ve developed as we’ve taught new content. We don’t list the new ways we can engage, represent, and give options for action and expression to our students. Taking time to reflect is a non-negotiable for our journey as expert learners. This course is designed to walk educators through that process.
