Personal and Authentic Virtual Leadership Summit:
Linking Theory to Practice

Dates, Times, and Location: 

Dates: October 12, 2020

Times:                   8:00am - 2:00pm  (includes live webinars with Thomas C. Murray)

Presenter: Thomas C. Murray


Recent work in the learning sciences has helped paint a detailed picture of what students need to thrive. Grounded in relationships, and built upon a culture for learning, personal and authentic experiences respect the hidden stories within each child and are learner-centered by design. These experiences are filled with moments of awe, and the learning is inherently relevant and contextualized. Appropriate levels of flexibility in pace and path are granted so that agency can develop, while authentic feedback ensures fidelity in the learning process. To support the personal and authentic experience, spaces and tools are leveraged in evidence-based, meaningful ways. 

Throughout this summit, leaders will:

    • Reflect on their own leadership and what aspects help or hinder those they lead
    • Explore ways to create cultures of innovation and risk-taking
    • Explore a framework to identify practical ways to make learning Personal & Authentic
    • Identify issues related to equity in access and opportunity
    • Leave motivated to continue the needed work in your school or district moving forward.
This summit will focus on relationships, learning experiences and amplify learning in schools and/or in school districts:

    1.     Personal & Authentic Leadership Create Cultures of Innovation – This session will help leaders explore their own personal WHY, connect their passion to their work, and empower those around them to rise up and lead in personal and authentic ways.

    2.     Personal & Authentic Learning Experiences – This session focuses on practical ways to nurture personal and authentic learning experiences, in any grade or subject area, while leading in person or remotely.

    3.     Personal & Authentic Spaces and Tools – This session will help leaders understand how to leverage educational technology as an accelerant for deeper learning, and discover many free tools, all curated by educators, ready to implement in their schools
