Event description
This Simple Interactions Institute is focused on how to adapt and facilitate Simple Interactions to engage practitioners and organizations.

About this Event

The Simple Interactions Institute 2019: Adapting and Facilitating SI to Engage Practice will include structured learning and practice sessions led by experienced SI teams from the Fred Rogers Center, Harvard Graduate School of Education, and University of Pittsburgh. There will also be ample time for reflective conversations with other leaders across educational contexts from early childhood to youth development. We will take deeper dives into specific skills and topics, including how to:

  • identify, recognize, and describe an “SI moment” on video or during in-person observations;
  • consider how to shape organizations and programs to support SI;
  • facilitate SI-focused conversations in workshops and in coaching sessions;
  • think about programs and practices through an SI lens;
  • communicate key SI messages, for whom, and why;
  • adapt SI (the seeing, the doing, the thinking) to each local context, considering wide variations in capacity, resources, logistics, and staff roles and responsibilities.

The institute is specifically designed for those:

  • who have had prior exposure or experience with the Simple Interactions approach,
  • who seek to expand the circle of influence afforded by their role and responsibility to support human relationships, and
  • whose knowledge and experience with specific communities and systems empower them to adapt ideas and processes beyond a “one size fits all” approach.

The event will take place on October 23-25, 2019 at the Fred Rogers Center at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA. The registration fee is $300 and covers the cost of lunch and dinner, materials, and facilities, not including lodging and travel.

We look forward to your joining us this October!
