Lunch and Learn: Mind the Gap

Audience: All Educators
PD Clock Hours: 1.5
Presenter: Dr. Michaela Fray Tappe
Food: N/A
Location: Virtual Via Zoom

“Learn continually. There’s always “one more thing” to learn.” -Steve Jobs

There is always “one more thing” to do, to think about, and ultimately to learn; however, it is vital to know what tools can be used to help identify the learning needs. Too often, as educators, we seek an instant solution to a complex problem that requires future investigation. Einstein once said, “if we had one hour to save the world, we would spend fifty-five minutes defining the problem and five minutes determining a solution.” This lunch and learn session will provide insight on Elena Aguilar’s “Mind the Gap” tool, which focuses on intentionally slowing down the urgency to provide a solution and leaning into deeply analyzing a situation or problem before offering a way to fix it. Participants will explore the “Mind the Gap” Framework and develop an awareness of the five things, Aguilar has found, that are needed to successfully accomplish a task or a plan: the skill, the knowledge, the will, the capacity, and the emotional intelligence. This framework and session will benefit all educators, it will be a highly engaging session, focused on applicable use of the tool.
