Helping teachers share best practices and work out classroom problems during summer workshops is one way CoLab helps teachers take risks and learn to fail in the process of becoming learning facilitators, Ralph Cordova, a CoLab teacher-leader, said in this interview with Bill Donius. An offshoot of the National Writing Project, CoLab offers a summer institute, local school-site support and school-level professional development. "Teachers learn how to study each other's local challenges and then develop design-centric approaches that lead to prototyping solutions to those problems, which they then test at small scales of resolution," Cordova said.
