For Us, by Us: Crafting the Student Experience


In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to a collaborative process of using student voice and feedback to inform the design and development of your out-of-school-time (OST) program.  Anchored in research and using a Student Experience Framework as an example, we cover the core values of student voice, design thinking elements, and continuous improvement practices.  This workshop is for practitioners and leaders who want to learn how to make their OST program for students, by students.
