The events of the past few months have demonstrated that we live in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world. Whether the global shutdown of schooling due to COVID-19 and the sudden move to remote learning, or the more recent protests against systemic, recurring inequities in our society, it is clear that we as educators need to do a better job.
This summer, Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College hosts Learning Futures Leadership Studio, a series of four online action-oriented studio sessions that are designed to engage teams of education leaders in creating pathways for leading systems in a time of change.
You will be immersed in provocative questions and ideas through interactive studio experiences. With your colleagues and others, you will reflect on these ideas and experiences. And you will develop action steps to pursue in your own context.
This is a BYOC (Bring Your Own Challenges) experience intended to allow you, in a team, to explore new angles and perspectives on the issues that you face today and expect to face in the future.
Who is it for?
This series is for teams of leaders and emerging leaders from a diverse range of educational organizations and contexts. We welcome participants from schools, school districts, community colleges, university units, nonprofits and cultural organizations — anyone creating learning experiences.
We recommend teams of 3-5 individuals. This size will better enable your organization to take advantage of the learning and work you do during the sessions and apply it in your context afterwards.
What will I get out of it?
You will come away from this experience with a renewed sense of purpose, coupled with new ideas, tools and strategies for mobilizing toward the futures of learning. You will also develop a collaborative network of fellow leaders working in the same direction, based on mutual commitment and inspiration.
