A four-day, in-person program with the goal of developing the collective identity and capacity of organization members as collaborators and inquirers and leaders.
Workshop by request
The training explores not only what makes teams effective, but how to develop skills as facilitators and informed group members in informal and formal settings, and in small and large groups. It takes participants beyond the idea of professional learning communities to the actual implementation, describing specific ways to weave the collaborative fabric of a faculty, develop group member skills, and acquire the principles and understandings to engage in a continuous cycle of team and individual improvement. Adaptive Schools© is the ‘how’ of professional learning communities: how to behave in groups, how to lead them, and how to facilitate them for improved leading, teaching, and learning.
