Education Institute: The Road Ahead

Education Institute: The Road Ahead
The Education Institute is a new virtual event designed to deliver highly-concentrated curriculum focusing on specific topics and trends. Moderated by podcasters Marissa Moravec (Mundelein) and Mark Dolphin (Wheaton), this year’s Institute will focus on the things driving every-day conversations at the office and at home: RECOVERY and WELLNESS. This event will feature a coffee talk with NRPA Open Space Radio podcasters Cort Jones and Roxanne Sutton, reveal important recovery data from research done with Illinois leaders, include an intriguing State of the Park and Recreation Union, identify stress levels and ways to reduce stressors, and culminate with an entertaining keynote who knows a thing or two about how to use disruption to incite creativity. This one-of-a-kind event is generously sponsored by the Illinois Park and Recreation Foundation, Cunningham Recreation, and PDRMA. Come join your colleagues for a unique experience you simply don’t want to miss!
