VWBPE 2020: STELLAR

Stellar: Outstanding; of or relating to the stars. (Merriam-Webster)

How do you reach for the stars?

Last year, VWBPE reflected on how we can build on the past to inspire, innovation, and create. This year we take the next leap, to go where no avatar has ever gone, as we explore the possibilities of what might be.

Instructors hold a special place in that cosmos of possibility. They are the guiding stars that help fuel the imagination to create, to build, to communicate, to partner. It is little wonder that instructors are innovators themselves, seeking out new worlds, new frontiers, and new opportunities for learning, as well as teaching. They are, in a word, stellar. Not necessarily because they want to be, but because they have to be.

Every day is a new universe of challenges, bringing together people of diverse skills and ideas. Whether it is language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, or a host of other subject areas, instruction today is not simply about book learning.

It is about experiencing.

It is about reflecting.

It is about doing.

It is about learning to be Stellar in ways that build creative and critical thinkers of the future. These are lifelong learners, capable of building galaxies filled with diverse worlds that blend people, processes, and technology.
