Problem Solving and Thinking on Your Feet
Presented by Dawn Huber
Problem solving for any community educator, no matter your position, is a critical skill. Employers want people who can use creativity, reasoning and past experiences to identify and solve problems effectively. Inexperienced problem solvers tend to jump right in to a solution stage of problem solving without taking proper time to fully understand the problem. In turn, unpreparedness may cause more problems. The key is to discover the real problem (often multiple) up front and then come up with successful solutions. The task of thinking on your feet is a learned skill and is invaluable in times of issues and concerns. Join us to get at all of this and more

Engaging Your Community for Optimum Results
Mike Looby, Retired Osseo Director of Community Engagement
This workshop will deepen your understanding of “Community Engagement” and why it is critically important in our rapidly changing world. Optimum results can be achieved when you have an understanding of the principles and the basic tenants of community education, coupled with an intentional plan to actively engage “your” community. A variety of both internal and external audiences will be identified as well as ways to engage them. Participants will leave the workshop with a strong start on an engagement plan they designed for specific audiences.
