The goal of Adaptive Schools Seminars is to develop the collective identity and capacity of organization members as collaborators and inquirers and leaders. In the Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminar, participants learn how to build strong, collaborative, and caring work cultures in which results-oriented faculties work together for continuous school improvement.
It offers principles, practices and tools to develop the resources and capacities of individuals, groups and organizations to cohesively respond to the changing needs of students and society. The training explores 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.
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. Participants will explore the latest practical findings in organizational development, team learning, and navigating the currents of change.
