SCHOOL TEAMS & NETWORK TEAMS

DESIGN LAB

The Heart & Soul of the Course

Through live facilitated sessions and independent, self-directed work, your school team will question your assumptions and find synergistic solutions for optimizing your time, talent, and other resources -- for this particular time and the future. You will work as a team (sometimes with your network staff) during and outside the Design Lab live sessions. This cohort includes 18 schools and each of the three Design Lab live sessions is composed of 6 school teams.

WEEK 1 

Impact Design

Pre-register for the Launch Session (Monday, July 27th, 1:30 - 3:00pm) here.

Optimize vs. Standardize

Traditional scheduling decisions are often limited by unnecessary assumptions. In our current reality, thinking beyond "seats and subjects" will be critical for finding solutions that support teacher and student success. Building your Impact Design mindset, tool set, and skill set, will help you be prepared to pivot when the context changes -- especially important this year and continually useful for future years.

READINESS

Planning for Implementation &

Change Management

Open and frequent lines of communication, plans for pivoting quickly when guidelines and contexts change, new ways of organizing staff -- all of these will come into play as we lay the readiness foundation for the year. Preparing plans does not imply rigidity, but rather foresight and anticipation of the need for multiple scenarios.
