Rethinking everything

1,056 views

Published on

It starts with the commitment to apply a #onething mindset, but a willingness to question each process and "why" can lead to powerful changes. This presentation addresses staff culture, classroom design, production cycles and media collaboration with a focus on empowering student leaders to think critically, re-evaluate and solve problems on the fly. This session was created for and presented at JEA Advisers Institute (more info at www.jea.org). #JEAai
