Drawing conceptually from LEAN philosophy and design thinking, participants in this edWebinar will learn that a LEAN Mindset is characterized by learning how to increase effectiveness of a process. As a result of the increased effectiveness, often efficiencies are identified that lead to cost savings.
Dr. Sal Menzo, Superintendent of Wallingford Public Schools in Connecticut; and
Joseph Corso, Principal of Lyman Hall High School in Connecticut, will share concrete examples that will stimulate participants to apply these strategies not only to their teaching and learning, but also to their personal and professional growth in problem solving. By personalizing these challenges and then learning about LEAN Mindset, participants will be prepared to begin the process of charting a course for meaningful and sustainable innovation in their classrooms and districts.
Teachers and administrators at all levels will benefit from attending this edWebinar. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation. Join us to learn how you can develop a LEAN Mindset for effective teaching and learning.
