The Institute on using the Principles and Practices of SRI Critical Friendship is designed to give educators the background information, skills and practice necessary to effectively lead collegial groups of all kinds, but especially, those focused on educational equity. Participants leave with insights and tools necessary for responsive facilitation and effective collaboration. All who are interested in being part of a learning community committed to equity with other educators, as well as those who are interested in supporting teacher-directed professional learning, are invited to attend.
Groups of educators who use the principles and practices of SRI critical friendship, facilitative leadership and adult development commit themselves to learning – with and from one another. Each group has a coach or facilitator who helps the group build trust by engaging in meaningful work while providing a safe environment for taking risks. This person is a member of the group, while helping others learn the skills that promote reflection, innovation, and making the work of teaching and leading visible.
