The Inspired Learning Project and MURSD welcomed Elliot Washor to the Inspired Learning Author series for a discussion of his book Leaving to Learn. The 30-minute interview delves deeply into a range of topics including Elliot’s story as a learner, the founding and development of Big Picture Learning and what “Leaving to Learn” looks like in practice, in particular, the importance of “the return” after the departure. We also touch upon the new MURSD Learning Adventures project.

It’s loaded with insights and wisdom that will not only have you nodding your head in agreement but also push you to change your school or classroom practices.
