The Courage to Teach(R) - Experiencing the Circle of Trust(R)

Presenters: Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey, TLT Group and Representatives from the Center for Courage and Renewal:
  • Mardi Tindal, writer and facilitator prepared by the Center for Courage & Renewal, with a decade of experience in facilitating both in-person and online retreats with cross-vocational groups
  • Mary Peters, Courage & Renewal Facilitator prepared by the Center for Courage & Renewal; educator focused on personnel development and state level system change
  • Lisa Sankowski, Program Manager for Schools & Health Care, Center for Courage & Renewal
  • David Henderson
How do we manage the transitions in our life?  Do we hold on to the trapeze bar too long? When do we let go? How do we manage the time between the trapeze bars? These questions apply especially now in this time of rapid change. Common needs or concerns associated with teaching online for the first time or adding something new to any teaching practice can benefit from Circle of Trust practices, ideas and resources.

The work of Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage and Renewal www.couragerenewal.org has guided educators and others to work and live more wholeheartedly. In this session you will experience several aspects of the Circle of Trust(R) approach. You are especially encouraged to use a microphone during this session.  You are welcome to join the early to check your microphone, 1:30 - 1:45 PM ET.

To get the most out of the experience we encourage you to check out the work of Courage & Renewal® including some brief video clips with Parker J. Palmer here: http://www.couragerenewal.org/getting-started/
