Hello Colleagues:

I am happy to share a huge learning opportunity for students!  Leonard 
Geddes from the Learnwell Projects, recently made his third trip to Canada 
to share his knowledge and experience of using metacognitive strategies in 
both the classroom and tutoring environments. 
I first met Leonard at the 2013 CRLA Conference in Boston.  In May, 2015, 
the Learning Specialist Association of Canada brought him as a keynote to 
our conference at the University of Guelph.  In October 2015, Leonard 
returned to Toronto where both Humber College and Centennial College 
shared his time and expertise over three days.  During that visit, Leonard 
presented to a small group of faculty and peer and professional tutors and 
then spent the afternoon training our tutors.  Following that visit 
Leonard returned to Centennial College on February 16 on an invitation 
from the Dean and Chairs of the School of Advancement to address 150+ 
faculty, learning strategists, staff and tutors as they recognized the 
value this would bring to our English and Liberal Arts classroom 
experience. 
The feedback received was overwhelmingly positive.  Leonard engaged the 
room in discussion and provided insight from the student perspective while 
delivering immediate strategies that could be introduced in the classroom 
and tutoring setting.
Since the visit last week, I understand that some of our faculty have been 
in touch with Leonard to carry on the conversation, our Learning 
Strategists have reported successful use of the strategies with students 
and our tutors are excited about using the materials in their sessions. 
Highly recommended!
