The Professional Learning Group is an innovative approach to learning that encourages personal, professional and organizational change. It provides a restorative model for learning and enhancing restorative practices within the organization. This session is designed to expose the participant to the Professional Learning Group model. The three current learning group experiences will be described. A panel of former participants will share stories of their learning experiences and answer questions as well. Participants will have the opportunity to experience some Professional Learning Group dynamics by participating in a circle of learning.
