Virtual PD Course Based on The Innovators Mindset

After the smashing success of the first #IMMOOC, George Couros and Katie Martin are back with an all-new course on educational innovation. The course starts on February 27th and is based on ideas from George’s amazing book, The Innovator’s Mindset. This book has taken the educational world by storm and is currently the #1 best-selling book on Amazon in Education Administration.

This is a HIGHLY interactive experience that will incorporate multiple channels of participation from YouTube Live videos, a Twitter chat component, a Facebook group, and blogging. Simply put, this course could be just what you need to take your educational innovation game to the next level. I HIGHLY recommend participating and encouraging others in your system to join along with you.

Take a look at the guests below to get a sense of how incredible this experience will be.
