Learning opportunities will take place on: Thursday afternoon, May 28, Friday afternoon, May 29, and Saturday morning, May 30. There will be three types of sessions:
- 60-minute Workshop: These sessions are teaching/learning sessions with stated and specific learning objectives during which attendees gain useful information, advice or technical assistance about a specific topic.
Example: “Constitution: What is it? Why have one? How to update it!” led by Michael DeNise
- 2.5-hour Workshop: These sessions are ideal for advanced-level trainings requiring additional time for attendee participation and small group break-outs.
Example: “Adaptive Leadership in Action: Moving to Change” led by Bishop Erik Gronberg.
- 60-minute Caucus: A time for affinity groups or people working on similar projects to gather and exchange ideas, network, and build community; an opportunity to convene a group of interested participants to discuss a specific topic.
Example: “Dwelling with those Experiencing Homelessness” led by Emily Norris.
