About the Brain Train™

July 3, 2012

Professional development

The Brain Train™ is a means to get away from the day-to-day distractions and obligations at work and instead dedicate a single day to focusing on the big-picture.  On the journey, we'll brainstorm, share and reflect on the ideas of each other to achieve a common goal: improving the process and practice of teaching and learning.

Departing from Portland in the morning we head to Seattle, where we enjoy lunch hosted by Clarity Innovations. We then board the next southbound train to continue the conversation on our way home.

The Brain Train™ works because it enables you to engage in the type of dialogue and thinking that often occurs at far away conferences without having the inconvenience of overnight travel away from home.  And, the group is kept small because we all have to sit together to make the discussion happen.
