Montessori Leadership Forum: Learning from and Building on Our Experiences during the Pandemic: An Appreciative Inquiry Approach

Wednesday,  June 23rd, 2021 
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT

 

The past year was very difficult for educators, students, and families at all levels, and it posed particular challenges for Montessori schools. But at the same time, Montessori educators – and the Montessori community as a whole – did an incredible job responding to these challenges – finding and creating new ways to support each other, their students, and their families through these difficult times. This hands-on, interactive workshop will explore how Montessori educators can learn from and build on their experiences during the pandemic by using the principles and techniques of Appreciative Inquiry, a participatory, strength-based approach to individual and organizational development. The workshop will begin with a brief introduction to Appreciative Inquiry and will focus primarily on a small-group breakout session and follow-up group sharing, during which participants will practice using Appreciative Inquiry to explore: a) The positive adjustments they made during Covid. b) What they learned from making these adjustments. c) How they plan to incorporate these lessons into their future work.

The course includes 7 pre-recorded video sessions, in which key concepts and instructional strategies can be absorbed at a time, place, and pace convenient for each adult learner. Each video segment will be followed by a live, online applied-learning session, in which participants will have an opportunity to pose questions, share ideas, and plan how to implement what they have learned in their classroom communities.
