PSi Cohort 2 Mid-Year Capstone Consultancy

What: PSi 2017-2018 Cohort Mid-Year Capstone Consultancy

When: Friday January 19, 2018, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. You are welcome to register to attend, even if you can only be present for part of the day.

Who: 2017-2018 Cohort of the Perrone-Sizer Institute of the Center for Artistry and Scholarship and guests

Why: The Perrone-Sizer Institute for Creative Leadership's 2017-2018 cohort of emerging leaders in education have reached their mid-year point and have identified key questions and challenges arising out of their Capstone Projects—collaborations each of them is developing between a community-based organization and their current workplace to address a common goal. The purpose of this event is to give students the opportunity to present and—with your help—further explore their question/point of inquiry. Using a structured protocol, you will engage in facilitated discussions about the students' work, and students will have the opportunity to think more expansively and deeply about the issues they have identified.
