The DMGroup Institutes offer a unique approach to professional development. Through a combination of lectures, workshops, and coaching delivered over the course of a few months, participants address a real, live challenge from their district.
Participants come as a district team and learn and work alongside other district teams. This cohort model promotes intra-team and cross-team collaboration and allows for an energizing exchange of ideas in a supportive environment. The unique experience leads to long-term learning.
- Hands-on learning: Participating teams tackle a problem of practice from their district. Participants practice applying their new learnings and refine their skills supported by coaching.
- Team building: Districts participate as teams of up to 8 members and learn and work together throughout their time at the Institute. Participants form valuable bonds and bring this spirit of collaboration back to the district.
- Collaboration and learning from other districts: A cohort-based model encourages participants to exchange ideas, collaborate, and form relationships with peers from other districts.
