Learning Experience

The Learning Lab experience is supported by both asynchronous and synchronous components. Each of the two Learning Cycles includes a set of resources, an asynchronous discussion, and an interactive live session, all of which culminate in the development of a project or application to apply learning to local and specific contexts in support of the learning objectives.


Welcome Session

March 2, 2023, 12:00–1:00 p.m. ET

This is a live session to learn the details of the Learning Lab, the Canvas site, and expectations for the microcredential. There will also be time to get to know your fellow Lab partners and facilitator.

Learning Cycle 1: Introversion and How It Impacts Your Approach to Leadership

March 7, 2023, 12:00–1:30 p.m. ET

We'll explore recent literature on introversion and leadership, including Susan Cain's book "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking." We'll also identify temperament tools useful for identifying introvert strengths.

Learning Cycle 2: Improvisation, Communication Skills, and Introversion

March 14, 2023, 12:00–1:30 p.m. ET

We will seek to understand how improvisation exercises improve communication skills. The live session for this learning cycle will include an improvisation workshop.

Review and Reflect Session

March 21, 2023, 12:00–1:30 p.m. ET

The Learning Lab will conclude with an application or implementation project (described below) and a closing live session to review and process the learning from the lab.

Lab Implementation Project

The final application project will be the creation and discussion of individual introverted leadership action plans.
