District Management Group (DMGroup) will hold its second Leadership Development Meeting of 2017 – titled "Innovating with Impact: Moving from Bold Ideas to Sustainable Results" – on October 12-13th at The Westin Philadelphia in Philadelphia, PA.
Given the many challenges facing school districts today, identifying and implementing innovative solutions and turning them into sustainable and scalable results is more important than ever. At the LDM, district teams will explore best practices and lessons learned for innovating in schools and districts, including innovations such as personalized learning, 1:1 learning environments, blended learning, project-based learning, and more. We will analyze and share lessons learned from innovations by actual school districts, with a focus on sustainability, program evaluation, and the impact disruptive innovations have on student outcomes and operational efficiency.
Cross-functional district teams will have the opportunity to collaboratively tackle problems regarding innovation in their school district, and grow leadership capacity through group problem solving, facilitated discussions, exercises, and planning time. District teams will apply our diagnostic tools and field-tested strategies to develop an action plan customized for their district.
