Retreat Themes and Topics of Learning

Taking time away from the normal school routine for professional learning and team building is critical in building human capacity and strengthening culture in an organization. I have personally participated, planned and led educational retreats for the past 22 years.  Brain research supports learning experiences in a retreat setting as they provide focused time to learn, and produce renewed energy. Uniting the events of the retreat with a theme provides novelty to the learning event.  

smileBrain Research: We all like shiny new things, whether it's a new gadget, new city, or new job. In fact, our brains are made to be attracted to novelty-- and it turns out that it could actually improve our memory and learning capacity.

Retreat Topics and Themes:

  • Getting our Ducks in a Row:  Aligned current instructional resources with standards
  • Good to Great: Scavenger Hunt and Bus Ride through Community
  • Journey To Learning:  Setting a vision and mission for leadership team.
  • Continuing the Journey(concert theme):  Communication Leaders
  • Discover the Creative Leader in You
