How do you launch Next Education Workforce models, and what do Next Education Workforce models look like in action? Join us to create a strategic plan for launching a team in your context and to visit schools that are implementing team-based models.
This two-day event opens with an introduction to the Next Education Workforce and features site visits to either elementary or secondary settings. At each school, you will have the opportunity to tour the learning space and interact with school leaders, educator team members and students. After the site visits, you will work with ASU’s Next Education Workforce team to learn how to launch a team in your context. You will set a vision for how team-based models will deepen and personalize learning for all students; identify launching teams for each pilot school; create a draft of your master schedule that prioritizes co-planning time for the core team; draft a plan for how you will use your existing space for pilots; and draft a plan for how you will create systems and structures that support teams.
We encourage school leadership teams to attend together and to consider using the site visit as a shared experience that helps prepare you to launch your own Next Education Workforce models. Multiple workshop sessions will be provided to attendees to allow a deeper dive into topics related to the implementation of team-based models.
Transportation to schools, continental breakfast and lunches are provided. View local hotels and restaurants.
