Principal Investigator from Harvard’s Project Zero to Lead Interdisciplinary Workshop for Faculty

On Friday, August 28, Princeton Day School is pleased to welcome Veronica Boix Mansilla from Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education to lead a Faculty Professional Development Workshop devoted to the advancement of Interdisciplinary Studies at PDS. Head of Upper School and Assistant Head of School for Academic Life Jason Robinson, who organized the workshop, noted “We are privileged to have as our workshop leader one of the world's leading authorities on Interdisciplinary Studies…. It is a privilege to have a scholar of Veronica's stature devote a full day to sharing her curricular insights and experience with us.” Boix Mansilla is a Principal Investigator and Steering Committee member at Project Zero, leads the IdGlobal Project and chairs the Future of Learning Institute. With a background in cognitive science, human development and education, she examines how to prepare our youth for a world of increasing complexity and interdependence. The goals of the PDS workshop are: to understand the nature of interdisciplinary understanding and why it matters today; to reflect about the role of disciplines in interdisciplinary work; and to explore opportunities for interdisciplinary work in existing (and future) curricula. Mr. Robinson announced the workshop as “a moment to pause before the busyness of the new school year is upon us, when we can claim some space and time for conversations about teaching, learning, and other issues of shared importance to us as an educational community dedicated to excellence and sustained reflection on our craft.”

Assistant Head of School Jason Robinson Serves as Honorary Fellow at Harvard Conference

Assistant Head of School for Academic Life and Head of Upper School Jason Robinson served as an Honorary Fellow at a week-long conference at the Harvard Graduate School of Education this summer. The conference attracted educators from all over the world and was dedicated to exploring the "Future of Learning" by looking at three specific trends that continue to impact our understanding of teaching and learning: globalization, digital technology, and neuroscientific research. Mr. Robinson noted that the Director of the conference was Veronica Boix Mansilla, who presented a workshop to Princeton Day School faculty last March on campus, and will again be coming to campus on August 28 for an all-faculty interdisciplinary workshop. Other leading figures at the conference were Howard Gardner and David Perkins, two of nation's leading authorities on education and both professors at Harvard's Graduate School of Education. Mr. Robinson worked with leading professors and was a ‘teacher of other teachers’ at the conference, remarking, “it was one of the best professional experiences of my career.”
