In our complex world, education is a powerful force for good in communities, classrooms, and organizations. The Applying Appreciative Inquiry in Education course is for graduate students (credit or non-credit) seeking to understand and create practical strengths-based approaches in their work in education settings. Participants working in K-12 and beyond will engage in a highly collaborative and innovative learning experience using the lens of appreciative inquiry to develop the knowledge and skills needed to apply and practice strengths-based processes in multiple contexts-self, classroom, organizations and/or the community. This course inspires participants to create their own practical applications for change.

Cost for the 3-hour credit course is $1,650.

Registration information will be posted in the spring of 2019.  For more information about the course, please contact the instructors through their website, above.
