Fall Meeting Facilitation Workshops

BACN is partnering with Building on the Best to host a series of 3 workshops this fall with a special discount for BACN members.

How to Facilitate Effective, Efficient, and Energizing Meetings
with Alexis Filippini, PhD


If you are a busy administrator responsible for regular faculty meetings, a coach or professor

who delivers professional development, or a lead teacher facilitating professional learning

communities (PLCs), this series is for you.


Prevent meetings from being swallowed up by logistical announcements, complaints without

solutions, and other distractions. Instead, make the most of the limited time you have, whether

you are offering professional development to graduate students, gathering input for faculty

decision making or communicating staff “nuts & bolts.”


Dr. Filippini will demonstrate and unpack strategies to make meetings more effective, more

efficient, and even more energizing, based on research from education and business sectors.

The first day includes guided work time to design your own meetings, so bring your notes and

“to-do”s for upcoming meetings or trainings. Days II and III will include a debrief of your fall

meetings, and will also explore how to plan an arc of in-house professional development across

the span of the school year.

Friday mornings September 23,  October 21, November 4  -- 9am to 12pm, breakfast included
