2016 Four Day Education Seminar
Crowne Plaza Seattle Airport
Educators are faced with many challenges today – gaps in achievement, behavior issues, growing class sizes, and new standards and testing requirements, to name a few. But when we create joy in learning for students, achievement gets better. Students become self-motivated and curious, their behavior improves, and test scores and graduation rates climb – along with student and teacher satisfaction.
The Deming in Education Seminar is a four-day, interactive learning event and hands-on approach to the Deming Method. It delves deep into the Quality Learning Principles and Tools that are necessary to gain the vision, purpose and capacity for quality implementation and to overcome the challenges and behavior problems you may face in your classrooms.
This is not another new program; it is a philosophy, a way of making decisions that returns the power of thinking, creativity and performance back to the students and teachers responsible for the results. It is possible to see the Joy of Learning return to everyone in the education system, including parents.
