This session will give ideas on how to design a PD system that makes learning more personalized and meaningful for staff. We'll explore different frameworks to begin personalizing learning, helpful tools to aid in the design, and, most importantly, how to get staff excited!

Putting Humanity in Education with Michael Allen 


Putting Humanity in Education Michael Allen. Author of Brotherly Love 
The transition from remote to in-person work or learning isn't always easy. In this webinar, you'll learn how to help others regain focus and see how your school or district can build “disaster-resilient” staff and students. 

Participants will learn how to make sure that staff and students are “fully” present and ready to perform, in part by analyzing the connection between neuroscience and mindfulness. The course also introduces other holistic methods, including mindfulness, mentoring, vulnerability, and therapy.
