LessonStudyNL is excited to welcome you back to the Netherlands. The 2023 international conference will be held in Zwolle, a beautiful medieval city with a modern art scene. Zwolle is the home base of Windesheim University of Applied Sciences, one of the partners of LessonStudyNL. We are thrilled to have you back. Let’s talk.
Talk is at the core of Lesson Study. Teachers talk to each other when preparing research lessons and discussing student learning. Students’ talk makes their learning visible. In addition, Lesson Study facilitators and knowledgeable others talk in supporting Lesson Study processes to stimulate teachers’ learning.
We all stimulate, support and streamline talk to enhance learning. This year’s WALS conference will allow us to focus in depth on talk as an important resource in Lesson Study–what is it, how does it support learning, and what complementary data sources are needed?
On three days we will invite presentations about student talk, teacher talk and facilitator talk. On each day, keynote speakers will introduce the main topic and dedicated sessions will zoom into the details of Lesson Study work going on around the world. We are excited to talk to you!
