Barrie Breakouts – Identified ‘Problems of Practice’ and Ensuing Dialogue
Prior to the regional Barrie SIM meeting, School Effectiveness Leads asked each member of their SIM team to pose a ‘problem of practice’ within pre-selected headings. These are shared within the submitted Problems of Practice – Barrie Region, Fall 2012.
During the breakout sessions, team members moved in to cross-district small groups to dialogue about these problems of practice. Transcripts from shared thinking in breakouts about problems of practice, Barrie Regional SIM session, Fall 2012 are posted.
