A day spent exploring what isn't working about how we're working, how we can improve how we work, and why that's important (not just in the obvious way, for us, but in terms of the work we ultimately want to do with you).
Digging into why we do projects at Powderhouse, why we think projects are some of the best vehicles for learning, and why we think learning is, more than anything else, about externizing your understanding in order to deepen it.
A session spent exploring: What is the FRY? What is a program of study? Exploring and triangulating the answers through analogy, example, what it is not, and more rather than tackling them head-on or top-down. Slides include links to the Specification for the FRY.
Exploring the vision for Powderhouse as an organization, digging into The Fifth Freedom (to learn), the type of organizations we were inspired by, and how the current Powderhouse school model came to be.
