Your Special Invitation


You are invited to a one of a kind professional learning experience hosted by Advanced Learning Partnerships and Dell Technologies

What is the ALP Experience?

The ALP Experience is a community-driven event bringing together multiple districts from the surrounding region. It is unlike a typical conference in that it features a blend of professional and personal learning built around the tenets of Social and Emotional Learning. It is designed to take full advantage of unique spaces and participants in service of conversations and learning that might otherwise be difficult to attain. The content and focus of these events will be customized to meet the needs of the communities it serves.

Who Will Lead This Experience?

The theme and focus of this event is Workplace Wellness. Dr. Katy Fodchuk will be leading participants through a number of thoughtful exercises and experiences that will help you to uncover areas of strength and concern as you endeavor to create a healthy and thriving workplace for all stakeholders.

Katy is an organizational psychologist with 20 years of broad experience in public and private sectors. Since 2006, she has specialized in K-12 education systems and is passionate about collaborating with and supporting districts as they implement transformational organizational change.

In addition, ALP will offer expert facilitators in protocols and community based experience to support Dr. Fodchuk experience.
