Introducing JSN Learn
In partnership with Catholic Faith Technologies, Jesuit Schools Network has developed an exciting new professional development course called JSN LEARN. Open to all Jesuit educators and colleagues free of charge, the JSN LEARN inaugural course features online, asynchronous module “courses” adapted from our annual Ignatian Inquiry After School Virtual Symposia, held each spring. JSN LEARN adapts the symposium’s video recording into a single virtual course, comprised of individual learning modules with a speaker introduction, presentation, reflection questions for journaling, and supplemental resources.
Jesuit Schools Are Committed To Life-Long Learning
We imagine this learning experience to be a good fit for professional development programs in your school communities. It can be considered for individual learning, cohort-based department groups, or even as a complement for full faculty in-service days in your school. We believe the topics covered in JSN LEARN are relevant to a wide-range of roles in our Network – from classroom teachers and leaders to support staff and board members – everyone who has a hand in shaping the learning of the students in our care.
We’re confident everyone will glean learning and insights that apply to their work in Jesuit schools. We hope you’ll consider utilizing this new JSN LEARN opportunity in a way that fits your school community best.
Inagural Course – Information & Registration
Our first JSN LEARN course is adapted from last spring’s Ignatian Inquiry After School Virtual Symposium entitled, Academic Rigor in Jesuit Education: What Does Academic Rigor Look Like in Light of the Changing Needs of Students in Our Jesuit Schools? It’s a conversation on the realities educators are facing in balancing the post-pandemic demands of meeting students where they are while embracing the traditional values of a college preparatory Jesuit education at the Secondary and Pre-Secondary levels.
