School for Change Agents Special Small-Group (Zoom) Sessions

These special small-group learning sessions are NEW for School for Change Agents in 2018. We are really excited about them, and hope you are too!

The Zoom sessions will offer opportunities to delve in more detail on topics relating to School – things such as building a narrative of self; the value of diversity in a complex world; building your narrative; and mobilising people for change.

Each session will involve an expert on the particular subject, as well as offer plenty of interaction and reflection on how you can put your learning in to action in your own workplaces. They will give you an opportunity to share your ideas, thoughts, and learning with your fellow participants. We’re aiming towards the majority of the session being focused on group discussion, with facilitators on hand to help where needed.

The Zoom sessions will be held at 7pm on the following dates, and last for 60 minutes unless otherwise specified:

  • Friday 16th February, 3.30pm
  • Wednesday 21st February
  • Tuesday 27th February
  • Friday 2nd March, 3.30pm
  • Tuesday 6th March
  • Tuesday 13th March
  • Wednesday 21st March

We’ll be soon be sharing details of what topic each date will focus on, the speakers that will be presenting these sessions, and how to sign up for them. In the meantime we thought you might like to put some ‘holds’ in your diaries.

We are offering these sessions in addition to the regular Thursday afternoon live webinars and in response to feedback you have given us in previous years around how you can put your School learning in to action. As with the Thursday afternoon sessions, they will be offered free of charge to you.
