Make Learning Epic

Purpose is a powerful motivator, for educators and their students. Using inspirational stories and researched-based strategies, Trevor shares how to use the power of story, brain science, and authentic learning to help teachers achieve true student engagement. Educators leave with proven practices to design authentic learning experiences, motivation to foster deeper student connections, and a compelling reminder of the impact they have on their students’ lives.

Letting Go of Perfection

In an educational landscape that constantly demands excellence and unattainable perfection, it's time for teachers to liberate themselves from the shackles of unrealistic expectations. This keynote delves into the profound impact of letting go of perfectionism on both the professional performance and personal well-being of educators. Through engaging anecdotes, evidence-based research, and practical strategies, this presentation will inspire educators to reevaluate their self-imposed standards and rediscover the joy of teaching.

The Purposeful Educator
Discovering the power purpose has to help students, their teachers, and their schools all thrive.

A strong why allows us to withstand any how. This keynote explores how having and articulating a greater underlying purpose to work inspires deeper engagement and more joy in the process, for students and educators. Using research and storytelling, Trevor helps educators understand how embedding purpose in curriculum, relationships, and their own careers can have a profound impact on their students and themselves.

Creating A Collaborative Classroom

Trevor inspires and equips educators with actionable ideas and proven best practices to facilitate successful collaboration. Authenticity and trust are the heart of strong student teamwork. When students are engaged in meaningful, relevant group work, collaboration is no longer a struggle but transforms into an anticipated, dynamic practice with rich outcomes and deeper learning.

The Epic Classroom: How to Boost Engagement, Make Learning Memorable, and Transform Lives by Trevor Muir

The Epic Classroom: How to Boost Engagement, Make Learning Memorable, and Transform Lives

by Trevor Muir

Definition of Epic: 1. A story or narrative centered around a hero 2. Spectacular; impressive; memorable. If learning is not memorable, should it even be considered learning? For too long, traditional education has used outdated practices to deliver complex and well-intended content to students with very little hope of that subject matter being retained. It often looks like this: Lectures are given --->Students write the information down ---> Students take a test on that information ---> Information is discarded from the brain ---> Repeat. In the The Epic Classroom, Trevor Muir presents a project based learning method that uses the power of storytelling and brain science to give educators practical and proven practices to achieve real student engagement. In return, learning that is permanent and memorable. Any teacher, in any subject area, and in any grade level can use the story-centered project based learning framework of The Epic Classroom to transform their classrooms into settings where students are engaged, challenged, and transformed. In this book you will discover - How to increase student engagement - How to plan and execute effective high quality project based learning experiences- Specific strategies for leading engaged students - Outlines and tools to plan, manage, and assess projects - Methods to increase academic performance in students.
