Professional Learning & Organizational Growth with George Roth

July 1, 2018

"We're not really good at learning from the past." - George Roth

I met George this past February and we had a conversation prior to the end of the school year, but I've been waiting to post this until educators, innovators, and leaders had a bit of time to listen intently as this is a conversation about topics we don't always discuss with clarity from academic research.

In prior conversations I was having with George that led to this podcast I was asking questions about learning organizations, limits to growth, the impact of networks, and the difference between professional learning and professional training.

I don't want to lead you as a listerner and learner, but I wonder how we might redesign the school year and education profession with some of these concepts.
