In this session, participants will explore two perspectives on educating and inspiring the whole student. Coming from the viewpoint of natural science, Dr. Glen Loppnow will show how challenge, opportunities and process can transform the learning environment for students, and the teachers themselves. Based on his experience as a social scientist and physical educator, Dr. Billy Strean will present the three components of “exhilarated learning”: human connection, whole body engagement, and the interplay of content and context.
