Facilitator Guide: Focal Student Learning Partnership Conversation

Focal Student Learning Partnership Conversation: Facilitator Guide

The Learning Partnership Conversation is a form of student data that is intentionally designed to facilitate deep listening between educators and students. It empowers students as partners and supports educators to reposition themselves as learners. As a result, educators have an opportunity to move beyond initial assumptions or feelings to investigate further, guided by curiosity.

While the conversation itself happens between the individual educator and student, the implications for adult learning are what happens before and after the student conversation in partnership with colleagues.

This facilitator guide is designed to support leaders in bringing Learning Partnership Conversations to their adult learning community.
