Innovation isn't easy and can get messy. The aim of this learning experience is to share how to not only survive the messy middle but how to grow and become better because of it.

Why is there a Professional Learning Community (PLC) Session one week after the interactive presentation session?
Learning is incomplete without implementation and inquiry. The PLC session scheduled a week after the interactive presentation session will give you a window to practice what you have heard from the workshop leader.
During the PLC session you will have the chance to take your learning deeper by asking any implementation questions you may have. Basically a community learning session with the workshop leader.
