Helping teachers achieve real gains in the use of innovative learning strategies requires teacher change on multiple fronts: adopting new strategies for engaging students’ interests, facilitating new roles for both teachers and students, and supporting student agency throughout the problem-solving/learning process. Unfortunately, achieving these gains is not easy; we need to begin by building teachers’ capacity – in all aspects of innovative learning - for them to be successful. Further, in order to sustain these changes, we need to support teachers’ initial small steps toward these bigger changes. In this presentation, I describe ways to initiate and sustain the change process via small strategy adjustments that, over time, can lead to impactful student learning outcomes.
