Implementation Teams Synthesis Workshop

Note to participants: We are experiencing one of the warmest Falls on record, but it is still cold in Minnesota in December. Average temperatures are 30's in the day and mid teens at night. Please dress comfortably and warmly for your time here and anticipate some snow. We will have a van to bring people between the meeting rooms and hotel, but we will still need to walk short distances outside.

December 7-8, 2016
Carleton College, Northfield MN

This meeting of team leaders from the Implementation Programs will focus on synthesizing the knowledge and experiences the teams bring from their experience with InTeGrate. Each Implementation Team has a wealth of experience and knowledge about the work they were trying to accomplish and this face-to-face meeting will allow the group to synthesize that expertise into resources and materials that will help the entire InTeGrate Community. This workshop will build on the published program descriptions from each program.

The meeting will begin with lunch at 12:00 PM on December 7th and conclude at 3:00 PM on December 8th.
