Workshops for School Leaders

Transformational Leadership

We've seen too many technology “rollouts” struggle to create true and lasting transformation in their districts or make any substantial difference in student outcomes.

To harness the power of technological advancements and equip students to be successful in a changing world, we have seen that making these shifts across diverse classrooms will require more than adding technology, online resources, and new programs. As a University-based research center, we partner with leaders who seek to not only equip students and teachers with technology but create innovative approaches to teaching and learning.

To harness the power in each of us, we need to create systems that allow for more personal learning experiences and tap into the strengths and potential of each individual. When we empower our K-12 learners to know how they’re uniquely designed, we know from research that they will find more relevancy in their learning and be more engaged and present in the classroom. But to empower our learners to know themselves, we must start by knowing ourselves first. In this one-day workshop, we explore our own strengths, interests, and values and tinker our way to better schools that empower all learners to discover their place in the world. Note: this workshop will require approximately 1 hour of pre-work, including taking two measures: the Gallup StrengthsFinder and the Strong Interest Inventory.
