Session Purpose/Overview

Facilitated Team Time (FTT) has been a favorite of Summer Institute participants for the last two years. This time is reserved and protected for RttT teams to develop a plan to share Summer Institute information with all LEA and Charter stakeholders, outline action steps for delivering appropriate professional development, and share the plan with other LEAs and Charters.

Session Description

Facilitated Team Time is scheduled from 1:00-4:00 pm on day two of the 2013 Summer Institute. A NCDPI facilitator will open the session with a brief overview to guide and focus the work of each team. Participants will have access to resources that will support the development of their implementation plan and will have the opportunity to share and collaborate with other LEAs and Charters through Twitter. Twitter is an online social networking service and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based messages of up to 140 characters, known as "tweets". The NCDPI facilitator will remain in the room to serve as a resource, a note-taker, an idea generator, a “tweet” expert or other roles as requested by each team.

Session Objectives

  • Share what was learned during SI 2013
  • Collaborate with LEAs/Charters across the state
  • Plan how SI 2013 will be shared with educators in your LEA/Charter
  • Focus on professional development


The LEA/Charter team lead is responsible for planning the goals that will be addressed during the collaborative time. The team lead should bring necessary materials to further the work of the LEA/Charter professional development planning process (PD calendars, PD plan, etc.).
Your team will not create a NCDPI-designed poster this year, so prior to attending facilitated team time, please consider how you will capture your work. This could be via Microsoft Word, a Google Doc, chart paper, etc. The team lead may want to review the resources below to inform your planning design:
