Preparing Educators as Leaders

Strategies Event Series at KU Edwards Campus

To support a vision of professional development for our colleagues in the Kansas City metropolitan area, we have partnered with the KU Edwards Campus to host the Strategies Event Series, as a continuation of the summer Strategies Conference hosted in Lawrence each year.  We invite all PK-12 educators, as well as others who are interested, to join us for a free professional development event series in Overland Park, Kansas. Please RSVP online to attend, so that we can ensure there are enough refreshments, chairs, and copies of handouts provided for all.

Mindset Makes the Difference | Part II
With Reva Friedman, Department of Curriculum & Teaching

You have heard about "Mindset." You have attended presentations, or have searched online for information, and you have questions. Questions about teaching, parenting, and/or collaborating with colleagues from a growth Mindset perspective. You wonder if corrective feedback undermines growth. You wonder how to praise learners/children/colleagues. You might even have attended our Mindset Makes the Difference | Part I session earlier this year. This second presentation focuses on building as well as expanding participants’ knowledge. Participants will learn about and practice specific strategies to promote the development of  healthy, functional Mindsets.
