We are teaming up with World Leadership School to host Global Gathering: Schools of Purpose at Parish Episcopal School on October 18-19, 2019. Global Gatherings are regional conversations, driven by educators and rotating between schools, on world-connected learning. The question behind this year’s Global Gathering is: "How can K-12 schools help students explore, discover and articulate a sense of purpose?”
The 1-5-day conference explores Purpose Learning as a powerful framework for the future of learning. Schools traditionally have focused on developing thinking above all else. The model is shifting as schools of the future will focus on learning as thinking, feeling, and doing all at the same time so that students can explore lives of purpose. Educators will leave Global Gathering inspired and equipped with practical takeaways that can be implemented into their classrooms and school communities.
We are also offering a pre-conference Risk Management 101 program essential for educators accompanying students in off-campus learning experiences. The program focuses on trip design and structure, emergency management, and risk assessment tools.
