Have you always wanted to launch a specific project but didn’t have the time or support?
Have you constantly considered revamping a part of your practice or an element of your classroom but it always gets pushed to the bottom of your to do list?
Can you articulate a challenge but aren’t confident that you know the solution?
Then this experience is for you!
This summer, join a professional development opportunity catered completely to your needs. Through a combination of in-person and virtual meetings, you will be guided through a design-thinking process to identify a specific challenge, evaluate possible solutions, and collectively develop an action plan to bring into the school year. Then, you’ll get support as you test it out, assess, and adjust your work when it matters most: when you’re back with students in the fall.
Join a group of dedicated educators across schools, grade levels and subject areas to improve your practice through design-thinking. You will gain leadership skills, get support to find relevant research, build meaningful relationships and work on a project you are truly passionate about!
The fine print: Any PK-12 educator (teacher, instructional coach, principal, etc.) can join a Co-Lab from any school (district, charter, independent) or organization that works with students.
