Some of the most powerful opportunities we offer to our clients are to be found in our conference experiences. The Schlechty Center offers national conferences throughout the year and also customizes conference offerings to be held in regional settings. Have a need? Just ask.
Design Camp - SOLD OUT
Held in Texas.
Imagine that you had both time and resources at the ready. Imagine that you were immersed in an environment of incredible resources: fellow teachers with whom you could collaborate and brainstorm new ideas; consultants available for coaching, designing, ideating, and integrating technology; even student consultants ready and willing to provide you with input concerning engagement and/or technology use. Imagine no more.
Superintendents Leadership Network Institute
Held in Florida.
At this Institute we will address the changing context of assessment and accountability and how these changes impact expectations for superintendents and school leaders. John Tanner, author of The Pitfalls of Reform: Its Incompatibility with Actual Improvement, will be with us as a resource to help consider how an accountability system that benefits students is different from one designed to benefit policymakers. We will explore the relationship between engagement and accountability.
Superintendents Leadership Network (SLN) Institutes are open only to SLN network members.
TIME: Technology Integration for Motivation and Engagement
It’s time to get beyond traditional technology implementation models and integrate technology seamlessly for engagement and profound learning. That takes a lot more than memorizing a few digital tools and substituting paper-and-pencil tasks with keyboarding tasks. TIME is a two-day experience that helps teachers meet these new challenges.
Ohio Design Academy
This three-day Design Academy will take place throughout the fall. At each meeting you will be immersed in a twenty-first-century learning environment. The Academy is structured to give you choice in how you work, who you work with, and what you produce. Registration will be managed by the Madison-Champaign County ESC. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Coaching for Design Level II
Coaching for Design Level II provides a district with coaches who are a valuable resource, as they will impact the district culture and provide the district with tools to build capacity at all levels. C4DII coaches will practice coaching with Schlechty Center senior associates and colleagues so they are comfortable with the content and the process before returning to their districts. This session is limited to 40 participants to ensure all participants have ample opportunity for personal interaction and customized support. This conference will take place over four days split into two sessions: September 26–27 and October 24–25. When registering, participants are agreeing to attend both the September and the October sessions.
