Bringing together district leaders and influencers from across the country, this program will guide participants through a set of educator-led design exercises. This work will be infused and inspired by “horizon chats” drawing on the experiences and expertise of industry experts and practitioners.

Throughout this event, you’ll be guided through six different phases inspired by IDEO’s design-thinking framework, built into two days of conversations and hands-on work to enhance your problem-solving skills.
