Introduction to Compassionate Systems in Schools
January 22-24 2020
Facilitated by Peter Senge & Mette Boell
At MIT Cambridge, Massachusetts
Offered by the MIT JWEL & the Center for Systems Awareness
This hands-on workshop is an introduction to the tools and approaches that have been developed for implementing what we call a “Compassionate Systems Framework.” These tools are being used at both the level of classroom innovations and collective leadership in shaping a more generative school culture. In addition to introducing some of the tools in use, we will share examples from prototypes with International Baccalaureate (IB) schools with the aim that participants can begin working together on similar prototypes in their own school and classroom settings. To support this, we recommend people come in teams where they can support one another moving forward.
