System Accelerator – Collaborative Processes for Critical Problem Solving in School Communities
Think outside the box! This training will use design thinking tools and facilitation techniques to develop strategic school community partnerships for generating and testing innovations. You will learn how to gather data, create school buy-in, and design wellness programs that can accommodate different school needs. The goal of this training is to increase awareness of the opportunities and resources available to support schools in applying innovative solutions to complex problems. We will provide an introduction to concepts including design thinking, prototyping, and strategies for building evidence for new ideas in school health and wellness.
Participants will engage in an innovation generation process that facilitates sharing problems, exploring potential solutions, and generating newly developed strategies to pursue.
