We are thrilled to have Dr. Brett Taylor as a featured presenter at the “Education = Storytelling” at the Rosen Centre, Orlando, November 15-16, 2019
Brett was the founding principal at the Patiño School of Entrepreneurship in Fresno, California, a public high school built entirely around entrepreneurship. He is an Assistant Professor at the University of the Pacific, where he designed the Education Entrepreneurship Master’s and Doctoral concentrations. He is also the CEO of NewSchool Innovation Consulting, a firm that facilitates the implementation of innovation frameworks for educational organizations.
Brett will be presenting on Design Thinking professional learning communities. PLCs are an established part of K-12 teacher collaboration, but have become compulsory, stagnant, and ineffective at many school sites. Dr. Taylor has worked with multiple schools to implement a design thinking framework into PLCs. This has led to increased innovation and attention to student needs. Attendees will learn about the process and framework for Design Thinking PLCs, how they change schools, and see evidence of real success. Equal parts of the presentation will focus on the theory and research behind Design Thinking PLCs, and how to support implementation with teachers.
