Christian Deeper Learning Conference
Denver Christian School, Denver, CO

Deeper Learning in Christian schools seeks to help educators with these three foundations: 1) A celebration of the learner: what it means to be created in God’s image, 2) A mindfulness toward learning design: how curriculum, instruction, and assessment inspire inward and outward engagement, and 3) A responsiveness to culture: how to embody our mission in every aspect of school life and how to live it out in God’s world.
