Our Mindfulness in the Classroom panels are one of the most high-impact experiences of the Cooperative summer workshop. The amazing leaders and practitioners at the Center for Integrative Learning and Teaching have been generous partners in creating panels full of a diverse set of experiences and perspectives.

Our closing dinner was hosted by OZ Arts Nashville. The artists and leaders at OZ are committed to supporting all of Nashville’s teachers in many creative and inventive ways. Check out their schedule for some incredible shows, and learn more about their connections to education here.

The geniuses at Stoke.d led the cohort on a journey of human-centered approach to problem solving unlike many of us had ever experienced. Design thinking for real problem solving and empathy driven solutions.
