Learning, teaching, and leadership demand something far more essential than the clear transmission of information and ideas. Their success largely depends upon the degree of relational safety and wellbeing felt by the participating parties - in short, by their lived level of trust. In organizations, everywhere – including Montessori learning communities – one can observe learning, instruction, and leadership that are being diminished or have been damaged, by breaches of trust.
In each of these three courses, Dr. Stacey MacKinnon and Jonathan Wolff invite you to join in a six-session inquiry on how trust is cultivated in a Montessori learning community – among students, staff, parents, and administration – as well as how it can be regained when it has been lost. Whether you are a Montessori guide, instructional leader, head of school, or teacher educator, “Trust Me.” is designed to help you establish a culture of trust in your classroom and school community, as well as heal hurts and rifts where trust has been compromised.
This course includes three prerecorded videos discussions with Stacey and Jonathan, with accompanying exercises for reflection and applied learning exercises. Each prerecorded session will be followed by a live 90-minute webinar that will include interactive discussions, small group work, and guided action planning.
