Join us for an insightful online workshop that goes beyond the surface of learner agency. Throughout this transformative journey, participants will explore the profound connection between children's identities, rights, and the educational environments we shape for them.
In Session 1, we will dive into the essence of learner agency, unpacking why it holds such importance in today's education landscape. Discover the intricate relationship between learner agency and self-efficacy, recognizing the pivotal role it plays in nurturing confident, empowered learners.
Session 2 delves deeper, encouraging participants to consider personal, cultural, and historical perspectives surrounding children's identities and rights. We'll explore how these perspectives influence the decisions we make about the way we set up our classrooms, interact with students and ultimately shape their sense of agency.
Session 3 takes us into the realm of practicality, exploring how we can support learner agency and self-efficacy in various learning environments. Gain valuable insights into adapting your teaching practices to foster agency in diverse contexts.
Finally, in Session 4, we will investigate concrete strategies schools can implement to cultivate the skills and dispositions that enhance and support learner agency.

Recognize that learner agency extends beyond superficial choices and ownership – it's about creating a cultural climate that truly listens to and involves children. Join us in this exploration of learner agency, where your teaching practice will be enriched, and your students will thrive as self-driven learners. Don't miss this opportunity to reshape your educational approach.
Child centred learning has been Anne's passion for more than 25 years. Anne has worked in schools in the Netherlands, China, Singapore and Switzerland, where she took on various positions such as team leader, PYP coordinator and director. Anne used to work at the Canadian International School (Singapore) where she was part of the team that took the school to IB authorisation Anne has been an IB workshop leader since 2005, sharing her passion for young children and play with educators in international schools.

Anne joined Eton House International Pre-School in August 2007, drawn to the school for its vision to establish early childhood education centred on young children's competencies in making meaning and building relationships. At Eton House, she first combined teaching with the responsibilities of the PYP coordinator. In June 2008, Anne became the Director of this school.

In August 2011, Anne moved back to Europe and took on the responsibility of Assistant Principal at the International School of Zug and Luzern(ISZL). At ISZL, she supported the development of a new vision for learning and teaching in the early years. This direction places a strong emphasis on relationships, play, learning spaces (both inside and outside) and on making learning visible to others.

Anne moved back to the Netherlands in 2015. This has given her the opportunity to collaborate for two years with the PYP development team at the IB regional office in The Hague. She has been working on the IB PYP review focusing on learner agency, early years, inquiry and several aspects of 'the learning community'. Anne still works for the IB workshop leader and collaborates with international schools as an independent educational consultant. From May 2019 to May 2022, Anne has worked alongside 4 and 5-year-olds at an inner city, IB PYP school in her hometown The Hague. She recently joined a new PYP candidate school as the PYP coordinator and vice principal.
