A Year-Long Professional Learning Series on Managing Change

There is nothing more comforting during turbulent times than to know you are not alone and that there are others available to support you as you navigate through new waters. During this unique and challenging time, Learning Forward Michigan is busy creating a series of virtual learning opportunities for you to hang out with other educators and explore key ideas and strategies for managing current and anticipated changes. Join in all or some of the facilitated dialogues. 

Participants will be invited to share their stories, concerns and questions, while well-known practitioners, authors, and researchers listen and share insights from their work. Janice Bradley, Nancy Coflesh, Ann Delehant, Dr. Ed Tobia and Frederick Brown are just a few of the educators who will be joining in the conversation. Our upcoming learning opportunity is a multi-session Book Study on July 16, 30 & August 13, 2020 with Nancy Colflesh, Ph.D. Order the book Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change.

Additional Sessions coming up:

  • August 6 - Facing Change: Our Inner Challenges
  • August 12 - Transitions: The Emotional Side of Change
  • August 25 - Promoting Meaning Collaboration During Times of Change: 7 Moves that Matter to Educators
  • August 26 (CORWIN PRESS EVENT) - The Distance Learning Playbook
