Leading by Convening: A Blueprint for Authentic Engagement
Leading by Convening (LbC) was developed by the IDEA Partnership, U.S. Dept. of Education/Office of Special Education Programs funding. A variety of stakeholders, nationwide, worked together to develop a “blueprint for authentic engagement” – a process for stakeholders to work through together to turn participants into partners and to move teams to deeper levels of collaboration.
Wisconsin LbC Learning Series
The WI Dept. of Public Instruction partnered with WI FACETS, through its State Personnel Development Grant, to develop a Wisconsin-ized learning series grounded in the Leading by Convening Blueprint. These archived sessions aim to scale up families’ capacities to serve on groups and school teams’ capacities to integrate families as equal partners in creating positive outcomes for children.
