(Pre-Conference) Courageous Conversations in Leadership
Our ever-changing educational landscape makes leading today an incredibly difficult task. Just like our students, we need to hone our 21st century skills such as collaboration and teamwork, creativity and imagination, critical thinking, and problem-solving to help us become the kind of leaders our students need. Join us for a day of learning and leading as we are joined by some of the biggest thinkers in educational leadership today.

(Pre-Conference) Micro-Credentialing: Professional Development for Today’s Educators
A digital badge or micro-credential is a validated indicator of accomplishment, skill, quality, or interest that can be earned in many professional learning environments or settings, both formal and informal.  Micro-credentials represent a broader movement in education from privileging seat time as a measure of credentialing toward competency-based professional learning. Rather than requiring that educators log a certain number of hours of training or workshops, micro-credentialing focuses on educators’ demonstrable mastery of skills usually in exchange for their own voice and choice in professional learning based on unique needs. Come learn more about micro-credentialing from several people who have been implementing this idea successfully in their own educational settings and determine a plan for how you can get started or continue this high-value model.

(Pre-Conference) Project-Based Learning: Pre-Flight
The ISN in partnership with the Newline Education are providing an amazing opportunity for those looking at exploring or starting PBL in your classroom or school. This one-day “PBL Pre-Flight” workshop will provide the basis of PBL for staff and administrators.  Participants will leave with a foundation for what is needed to begin integrating PBL into your classroom/school. This workshop will provide valuable insights, information, and hands on experiences and most importantly the time for participants to draft their own goals and steps to moving to PBL implementation. This workshop has been developed to act as a prerequisite for attending the 2018 PBL Summer Institute.

(Pre-Conference) Team Building
Team building is more than a game. It’s based on the relationships between and among your community of learners, and building the capacity and stamina that will lead your learners to the best experiences of their lives. Join us for a day of exciting team building activities that will catapult you and your learners to awesome new levels. Participants should prepare for outside activities and dress for movement!
