In his personal life, he enjoys reading, running, and spending time hiking and camping with his wife and two dogs.
This week we had the pleasure of talking all about Learner-Centered Spaces with Tyler. While Learner-Centered Spaces do provide students with autonomy and may often look chaotic, Tyler reminds us how important it is to provide some basic systems and structures to make sure that learning is intentional. He talks about how it’s not only important to be intentional about “where we are going” but also “where we have been.”
