This 3-week learning experience includes six learning blocks at two hours each, totaling to 12 hours of virtual live learning. Each session requires an hour or less of pre-work before the virtual engagement.
The virtual engagement takes place on Zoom and requires Zoom (5.8.6 or higher)* and a computer. If you have access needs or accommodation requests, please email email@example.com. We will do our best to meet accessibility needs.
*Currently Zoom does not allow for auto-captioning in breakout rooms, which we frequently use in workshops. Please let us know if you require captioning in all spaces to access virtual learning.
All sessions (except breakouts) will be recorded in the event you cannot make a session or if you would like to rewatch at a later time. Participants have access to content for 30 days after the learning experience.
COURSE PRE-REQUISITE & MATERIALS
If you are newer to leading PD, we encourage you to participate in Artful Design and Facilitation 101 though not a requirement.
- Participants must have their own copies of The PD Book: 7 Habits That Transform Professional Development.
- The book is NOT included in the course pricing. Participants must acquire the book on their own before the start of the course. Affiliate link is included above.
In this six-session learning series, you will receive the tools, skills, and dispositions to create meeting, gathering, and learning spaces that allow you and the adults you serve to thrive beyond our current conditions. Drawing from Elena Aguilar and Lori Cohen's book, The PD Book: 7 Habits that Transform Professional Development, participants will explore the advanced skills of designing and leading adult learning.
You’ll apply adult learning theory to intentional meeting design and facilitation, learn about how to engage emotions and navigate power, consider the crucial elements of intentional design and the details that make learning matter, and practice adaptive facilitation when unforeseen circumstances arise. Through reflective activities, individual practice, and group connection and processing, you'll leave this series with skills, strategies, inspiration, and connection with others in a transformational learning community.
