When we are called to innovate or pivot, it is often in response to a complex challenge that requires a resilient solution. Characteristics of resiliency are inherent to innovative practice.


This series of general conversations will get participants thinking about, talking about, sharing about and — importantly — recognizing their own capacity for resilience and enacting resilience practices as they innovate the way that they teach, learn, and live. The group will meet throughout the summer to discuss curated content focused on managing anxiety, navigating ambiguity, and enacting adaptability through innovation.  Build your innovation and resiliency toolbox in community with colleagues during these one-hour facilitated conversations led by ASSETT’s Innovation Catalyst, Blair Young, and the Center for Teaching and Learning’s Inclusive Pedagogy Lead, Becca Ciancanelli.

Session dates
