How can schools “get better at getting better” AND remain invigorated and equity-focused? Our interactive three-day Summer Institute will draw from  the continuous improvement mindset and tools pioneered by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and High Tech High’s practical application of improvement tools to a variety of fast-paced and innovative K-12 contexts. We will also draw from the work of organization's like Leadership + Design and the Stanford d.school in applying the mindsets and approaches of design thinking to education. Together, we will explore methods for surfacing and understanding complex problems of practice and nurturing mindsets and team cultures that encourage accelerating the spread of good ideas.
