Transformation through Collaboration: Building Leadership Capacity for Systemic Change: 3 Institutes, each institute is two hours.

The goal of these three conference institutes is for participants to discover and practice tools/frameworks that challenge educators to build their capacity to think and act in new ways. A different set of learning frameworks will be explored in each institute. The goal of each institute will be to help prevent others from falling inadvertently into the swamp of constrained possibilities.

Building Trusting Learning Environments for Innovation

Participants will be introduced to, and experience, cognitive tools/frameworks that promote deep listening, dialogue, and mutual learning. The quality of the relationships one builds with students in a classroom or with colleagues in schools deeply influences the quality of his or her thinking. The capacity to innovate is directly impacted by the collective capacity to create trust and think deeply. Playful and engaging activities will be the learning design for this institute. Participants will leave with practical information and practices that they can use with colleagues and students in their home schools.
