Join Us in ‘Thinking Wrong’ on October 20
This year’s attendees of the AACTE Virtual Leadership Academy Series are committed to enhancing their leadership skills, especially during these difficult times. Here’s what a couple of your peers had to say about this year’s virtual Leadership Academy first session:
“I loved the meeting, even though I wished we could be there in person. I attended the academy several years ago in Pittsburgh and got so much out of it. I think that the presenters did an amazing job of engaging everyone in interactive polls and breakout rooms. Our discussions were right on target for what we need to get started in leadership this year with its many challenges. I appreciate the opportunity and I’m definitely looking forward to the next meeting.” – Sue Corbin, Ph.D., Notre Dame College
“The greatest gift I have received from the Leadership Academy thus far is the exposure to leaders in the field, including professors, chairs, and deans who are trying so hard to, despite COVID, to ensure learning and quality programming take place. This first session has reminded me that, as leaders, we must be part of the solution and focus on the positives, no matter how unfamiliar or uncomfortable our current circumstances may be.” – Amy M. Barrios, Ed.D., Texas A&M University San Antonio
I invite you to join AACTE for the second session in our Leadership Academy series taking place October 20. The engaging session, “When Thinking Wrong is Right: Purposeful Disruption of the Status Quo,” will explore how to disrupt the ordinary and consider when thinking wrong is the right thing to do. Led by Patty Alvarez McHatton, senior vice president at Branch Alliance for Educator Diversity, and Kandi Hill-Clarke, dean of the College of Education at the University of Memphis, the session will include open discussions, supplemented with small group, interactive exercises, to put into practice thinking wrong to do right. Share your practices and learn how others find time to reflect, explore, and innovate in intense and time-consuming environments.
Participation is limited to 100 attendees and is filling up fast! For more information, go to aacte.org. All sessions will take place in the Eastern Time Zone.
