The Building Blocks workshop is designed for teams of three to five leaders who are involved in the teacher-candidate experience.

We have found that teams focused on one program (e.g, elementary education) often have more productive experiences than teams focused on multiple programs at their institution.
Fee includes all materials, breakfast and lunch for the two days, and optional follow-on coaching from Deans for Impact staff. It does not include travel, lodging, or other meals. Space is limited, and registration is first come, first served.
*Teams of four or more people receive a 15 percent discount for all participants.
