Adaptive School Foundation Seminar - Mt. Vernon, IL - Jan/Mar 2015


The Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminar is the “how” of professional learning communities: how to participate in groups, how to lead, and how to facilitate for improved leading, teaching, and learning.

Participants will:

  • Be presented with a productive, practical set of ideas and tools for                   developing collaborative groups in becoming effective and better                     equipped to resolve complex issues around student learning.
  • Learn how to develop the resources and capacities of the organization             and of individuals to cohesively respond to the changing needs of                     students and society. Explore what makes teams effective, and how to develop skills as facilitators and informed group members in informal and formal settings, in small and large groups.

Go 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.
