    In brief, CEs are an extension of Problem- or Project-Based Learning (PBL) and related approaches to education in which participants address a scenario or case in which the problems are not well defined, shaping their own directions of inquiry and developing their skills as investigators and prospective teachers (in the broadest sense of the word). (For more background, read the prospectus.)

    Intended outcomes for participants of this CE are of two kinds:

    b) experiential: being impressed at how much can be learned with a small commitment of time using the CE structure to motivate and connect participants.
    Applications are sought from teachers, researchers, graduate students, facilitators, and activists who are interested in facilitating discussion, reflection, avid learning, and clarifying one's identity and affinities in relation to the CE topic. Newcomers and return participants are welcome.

    “Most workshops are dysfunctional—this one wasn’t!” read one evaluation from the first NewSSC workshop in 2004. Appreciative feedback like that may feel like validation for the any workshop or collaborative processes that you facilitate, but how well can you articulate or support the principles or theory about personal and group change that underlie those processes? Moreover, how would you lead people who experience the dysfunction in many workshops, collaborations, conferences and meetings into making the effort to create something more fulfilling?

The topic means that the processes of the CE (and NewSSC workshops) and the ways they make space for people to "connect, probe, reflect, and create" will end up being subject to compare-and-contrast with other approaches to workshops and generative group interactions.

    “Most workshops are dysfunctional—this one wasn’t!” read one evaluation from the first NewSSC workshop in 2004. Appreciative feedback like that may feel like validation for the any workshop or collaborative processes that you facilitate, but how well can you articulate or support the principles or theory about personal and group change that underlie those processes? Moreover, how would you lead people who experience the dysfunction in many workshops, collaborations, conferences and meetings into making the effort to create something more fulfilling?
    This four-day workshop is intended to allow participants to delve into the principles or theory that underlie your own workshop or collaborative processes and develop plans to make those processes more effective in some sense(s) that you deem important. Activities will, as they have at NewSSC since 2004, build on what the particular group of participants contribute and employ a range of tools and processes so as to support and learn from each other's inquiries. The topic means that the processes of the NewSSC workshop itself and the ways they make space for people to "connect, probe, reflect, and create" will end up being subject to compare-and-contrast with other approaches to workshops and generative group interactions. The intended outcomes include: a) products that reflect your inquiries and plans, conveyed in work-in-progress presentations or activities (10-15 minutes) and revised in response to feedback so as to be shared outside the workshop (examples), b) experiences that motivate you to take your individual projects beyond their current scope or level of activity, and c) stock-taking towards developing the workshop format. This format, in brief, includes an activity together as a group each morning and again for an hour at the end of the day. In between, time is spent in independent research related to this scenario, in conversations, and in other pursuits that participants find helpful for advancing your projects.
    Applications are sought from teachers, researchers, graduate students, facilitators, and activists who are interested in facilitating discussion, reflection, avid learning, and clarifying one's identity and affinities in relation to the workshop topic. The workshop format will allow for a limited number of participants over the internet. Newcomers and return participants are welcome.
