Many here know that for our views on best practices Tina and I are no longer allowed on the iFLT list. On top of that, Michael Kundrat – the moderator of the moretprrs list, won’t publish our summer workshop schedule there. No reason given.
Fine. I’ll post it here and we will post it on the CI Liftoff page. The actual (updated – we added a few more) schedule was published here yesterday. Some additional details from Tina:
Lately I have been very busy getting ready for the summer. Ben and I are super excited about meeting people all over the place this summer. I’ve never been to so many cities in such a short time in my life!
I wanted to apprise people of the fact that the price for our series of two-day trainings in July and August this summer will increase from $200 to $275 on June 5.
Here is the link to read more about the trainings and register.
We recently added two new locations – Sheffield Village, Ohio in August 4-5 and the Twin Cities area in Minnesota on August 21-22. We are excited to announce that Grant Boulanger will be co-presenting at the Minnesota workshop.
The early price for Minnesota will increase from $200 t0 $275 on July 1 since it was just now added to the schedule. The Ohio training on August 4-5 has special early discounts of $175 through June 5, $200 till July 10, and $275 after that.
We have also added an optional third day to the Chicago and Minnesota workshops, on Starting the Year and Cycles of Instruction and Assessment. The cost is $90 if you take the two-day workshop and $125 as a stand-alone workshop. The dates of this workshop are Saturday, July 29 in Chicago and Wednesday, August 23 in Minnesota.
We recently finalized the schedule for the Cascadia CI Conference in Portland, OR. Here is a link to that. We have, in my mind, a fantastic lineup of presenters, demonstration teachers, and coaches. We have an Equity Strand and a Beginners Strand, and we will also be making videos of the presenters that will be available to attendees through an online course that you can access for as long as you want after the conference, so that you can see the content of sessions that you missed. More information and registration is available here. We also added a block of rooms at the Shilo Inn in Beaverton, OR for $124 per night. We have king and double queen rooms available at that rate and will be running shuttles to the conference from there. This rate is available the nights of June 25-July 1.
If you have any logistical questions on getting out here for the conference, including payments/scholarships/work-trade, please contact me.
Happy summer or almost-summer to you all,
