Lara Ramsey, Ed.D.

My workshops with school faculties introduce the use of protocols and descriptive processes as tools for giving close, focused attention to critical matters of teaching and learning.

Protocols, or structured conversations, allow more time and more perspectives to bear on the topic at hand: a child, a piece of student work, a lesson plan, an assessment, a teaching dilemma, or a pedagogical idea.  I facilitate processes that rely on the expertise and experience of teachers, as teachers are best able to understand and pursue the questions alive in their own school setting.

Protocols and descriptive processes provide a forum that heightens respectful dialogue, hones awareness of multiple perspectives, and protects time to think and reflect.
