This interactive, hour-long workshop shows you how to create a learning agenda that will define those questions for a single initiative or a whole organizational strategy, as well as how to prioritize the questions so you can focus on those with the greatest potential benefit. Participants will leave with a head start on a learning agenda for their own program or organization. Register for the Workshop
Education leaders spend most of their time solving problems large and small. But how do you know you are solving the most pressing problem? Focusing on the wrong issues wastes resources, something no district can afford. In this interactive, hour-long workshop, we will demonstrate how to diagnose the core issues facing your education system, using a systematic set of questions that help you probe your assumptions and get to the crux of the matter quickly.
