Leading Professional Learning That Sticks

Professional learning is both an art and a science which requires those who deliver it to commit to continuous learning and improvement. This workshop builds the skills of those who deliver professional learning to move from a stand-and-deliver approach to one that engages participants in interactive sessions that push their thinking. NYCLA-trained facilitators don't just communicate information, they facilitate - and take responsibility for - the learning of their participants.

May 11 & 12 at our offices in New York City
Tuition: $1,200 per person

This intensive two-day workshop will provide opportunities to understand our facilitation methodologies while practicing facilitating curriculum and receiving feedback from peers. You will learn from experience, reflection, and collaboration – all while moving between the roles of curriculum designer, facilitator, and student. You will deepen their skills in:

  • Tailoring teaching strategies (such as mini-lessons, simulations, role plays, and coaching) to their diagnosis of individuals and groups
  • Designing strategic, focused interventions in order to push thinking
  • Provoking and containing discomfort in the service of learning
  • Stimulating and sustaining conversations about equity

“The kind of facilitation that the Leadership Academy teaches is more honest and authentic. The facilitators are very intentional about building a conceptual understanding and not just providing the right answer. It is as much about the learning process as the ultimate outcome. In turnkeying this in Maricopa County, I am able to build stronger relationships with the people I am supporting and fostering professional growth that I believe will last.”
