SoL 5 (Summer of Learning) “flow” at ShortCourse #bcpvpa

The week at @bcpvpa ShortCourse at UBC is almost an exploration of relativity of time. There is so much going on and yet the time seems to slip by. Before we know it, we’ve reached the end of the week. 

Each day could stand on its own. Each speaker opens up great questions about education leadership. Each day by itself could be ‘enough’. But much like the job and role of PVPs, there’s always more coming up….

One of the key tools that “we” provide (as facilitators) is the use of time. Both in terms of cramming a lot of learning & information into a relatively short period of time (I think every presenter/work session goes ‘a little over time’) and also using Time as a tool. Last night one of my group members wife took me to task when we were talking about his homework – but I explained the homework was ‘thinking time’ – posing a question but then giving authentic time for thinking and reflecting (not topic+10 minutes= success)

And as important as the working/reflecting/personal time is (and exhausting as this intense week can be) Friday always sneaks up on us. That is the power of ‘flow’. Heavy engagement. Relevant & meaningful topics to think/talk/process/wonder about. 

Good people with some good food and good questions/thinking certainly make the time fly – or flow by!
A big thank you to my inquiry-based-ShortCourse-cohort for the greatest gift/tool: your time.
