Making More Key Changes: Motivation for the Seasoned Educator (Level 2)
This course is open to ALL subject areas and levels of teaching as an extension of “Making Key Changes: Refresh Your Program (Level I).” In order to register for “Making MORE Key Changes: Motivation for the Seasoned Educator (Level II),” interested students should have taken “Making Key Changes: Refresh Your Program” either through VanderCook College of Music or at The University of the Arts between the summers of 2019 and 2022. If an interested student has not taken this prerequisite course, they may email Dr. Lori Schwartz Reichl [[email protected]] for a potential exception based on their experiences. Similar to Level I, this course is a creative mentorship and motivational approach intended to encourage reflection, motivation, and change both personally and professionally. There will be a brief review of content from Level I, with topics such as branding, burnout, creativity, leadership, relevancy, professional development, and transitions to be discussed in greater detail.
The course is a creative mentorship and motivational approach intended to encourage reflection, inspiration, collaboration, creation, and ultimately – refreshment!
