Selection of Workshops

Faculty & Staff Well-Being

Well-being is a practice, much like teaching, that requires individuals and communities to continually prioritize and recommit. In this workshop, we draw from current research and data from our Faculty & Staff Survey to identify opportunities and strategies for individuals and the school to improve faculty and staff well-being.

The Well-Balanced Student

Increasing demands on students may lead to unhealthy stress, resulting in burnout, disengagement, or debilitating physical and mental health symptoms. This workshop examines factors that contribute to undue stress like homework, grades, and the culture of competition, and offers tools for creating a healthier school climate.

Toolkit for Rethinking Assessment

Looking to add new assessment practices and strategies to your toolkit? In this workshop, you’ll explore a variety of ideas to help you easily and regularly integrate assessment into the learning process. This workshop is well-suited for schools looking for practical strategies that teachers can use immediately in their classes.

Building Blocks for Belonging

All students need to be seen, valued, and respected in order to be healthy and engaged learners. Building an inclusive school community sets a critical foundation for a successful school year and beyond. In this workshop, participants will explore concrete classroom strategies and school-wide policies that foster belonging and support interpersonal connections, with a focus on giving all students, particularly those who have been marginalized, a sense of agency.
