Appreciative Resilience and Educational Development: Opening Keynote
Tuesday, February 19: 12 pm – 1 pm EST
Join Link Arrow Joan McArthur-Blair and Jeanie Cockell for a dynamic web-talk on their recent work in Appreciative Resilience. Educational Developers do powerfully important work inside organizations. They see the innovation on the horizon and translate it for individuals, teams and the entire organization. One of the innovations institutions are calling out for at this time is the practice of resilience as a process to help sustain the work of higher education. Appreciative Resilience takes the power of appreciative inquiry and embeds it into resilience practices as individuals and organizations journey through hope, despair and forgiveness. You will leave our time together with new ideas and ways to practice resilience.
