More exciting things happening this week in the world of collaborative inquiry. Remember, there's no checklist for collaborative inquiry as it is a cultural norm for the way we work together to honor, value, and leverage the expertise within MNPS.
Innovation Configuration Videos by REL Appalachia
A what??? That's what I usually hear when I say the words, "Innovation Configuration" to people. What is it? Why do I care? How could I possibly use it?
To help answer those questions, REL Appalachia created two videos to add to our Collaborative Inquiry Toolkit. You can find them on the About page of our toolkit: http://www.mnpscollaboration.org/about.html.
Cross-REL Early Warning System Webinar Series
