The Blueprints (Shared notes)
Each session had a "Blueprint" Google Doc for shared notes. These notes will serve as an important an important resource for staff future reference and learning, and to connect to the content of sessions they might not have been able to attend.
Sharing our Story
In addition to curating resources in the shared "Blueprints" for each session, we shared our learning via Twitter using our professional learning hashtag #214Learns.

The feedback from the day was overwhelmingly positive, and there were great suggestions, too. In addition to conversations with staff, we will be guided by the responses on the Institute Day Survey. Nearly 100 staff completed the survey and the feedback will guide us in planning future professional learning experiences. We have already begun using the feedback to plan our 2nd Quarter Teaming on Tuesday sessions to keep the conversations going. We see the Institute Day as a great springboard for ongoing conversations and learning.
