Presentations are made by key MSU College of Education faculty and national authorities who address critical policy issues.  The Michigan EPFP's affiliation with the Education Policy Center at MSU and the Office of K-12 Outreach enables the EPFP Fellows to participate in these forums.  While attendance is encouraged, these forums are optional policy experiences for the Michigan EPFP Fellows.  A luncheon is provided and reservations are required. <br /> <br /> The 2009 forums are listed below:</p> <blockquote class="style1"> <p><strong>February 5, 2009</strong></p> <blockquote> <p><strong>A Vision for the University in Times of Economic Crisis</strong></p> <p>Dr. Lou Anna K.

Most recently, she has been working with the C.S. Mott Foundation on a statewide initiative intended to build a system in Michigan that encourages more high school graduation through dropout prevention and recovery efforts. This work concentrates on producing multiple pathways to graduation by growing better data about students and the systems that serve them, providing better educational options for young people, and building public support for policy and practice that sustain those options.</p> </blockquote> <p><strong>Resource Materials </strong></p> <blockquote> <p>2008 Leadership Forum Agenda Booklet and Notes<br /> <a href="http://www.frameworksinstitute.org/" target="_blank">Frameworks Institute</a> <br /> <a href="http://epfp.educ.msu.edu/images/stories/files/EPFP%20Session1.5.09.ppt">Advocacy Powerpoint</a></p> </blockquote> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </center> <p align="left"><b><a href="http://www.educ.msu.edu/epfp/meet/09mo_meet.htm">Back to the Monthly Meetings Calendar</a></b></p> <hr noshade="noshade" /> </center> <center> <center> <h1>Advocacy in Policy Making: Strategies for Becoming Effective Advocates</h1> </center> <center> <table border="1" cellpadding="12" width="75%"> <tbody> <tr> <td><center> <div align="center"> <p><b>January 5, 2009<br /> </b>12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.<br /> <a title="http://www.hfs.msu.edu/kellogg" href="http://www.hfs.msu.edu/kellogg">Kellogg Center, MSU</a></p> <p align="left">The purpose of this session is to examine the role of advocacy organizations and the strategies used by these organizations to impact the policy making process.

Horn and Curtis W. Johnson's Disrupting Class - How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns. Some additional resources are provided below. Fellows will read the book and be prepared to discuss the big ideas presented by Christensen, Horn and Johnson. We are excited to be able to schedule a thorough discussion of Disrupting Class prior to the December 3 seminar sponsord by Michigan Virtual University. The ideas presented will provide us with a 21st Century construct for our ongoing learning around educational policy and leadership. In addition, we will be doing some prep work on developing Learning Teams that will be responsible for leading our learning after the first of the year. As part of your preparation for the Learning Teams, begin focusing on particular areas of interest around which small teams of 4 or 5 Fellows could do some in-depth learning and sharing. These areas could include current policies in the making that will impact education, studies of leadership issues in education, analysis of current policy issues in education, or other. On the 17th, you will have a chance to share your area(s) of interest for learning teams as we begin the process of selecting the final choices for the '08-'09 teams.</p> </center></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </center> <center> <table width="85%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p><strong>Resource Persons: </strong></p> <blockquote> <p>Fellows and Coordinators</p> </blockquote> <p><strong>Agenda:</strong></p> <blockquote> <table cellspacing="10"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top" width="79">12:00 noon</td> <td width="755">Lunch</td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top">1:00 pm</td> <td> <p>Overview of Disrupting Class and Implications for Michigan Education</p> <blockquote> <p>Jamey Fitzpatrick (EPFP 1990-91)<br /> President & CEO, Michigan Virtual University</p> </blockquote> </td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top">1:45 pm</td> <td> <p>View DVD Segment of Professor Clayton Christensen's Remarks on "Disruptive Innovation".</p> <blockquote> <p>Delivered to the Annual Conference of the Education Commission of the States, July 2005</p> </blockquote> </td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top">2:00 pm</td> <td>Discussion of Disrupting Class</td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top">3:00 pm</td> <td>Break</td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top">3:15 pm</td> <td>Summarize Discussion</td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top">3:45 pm</td> <td>Preliminary Development of EPFP Learning Teams</td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top">5:00 pm</td> <td>Adjourn</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </blockquote> <p><strong>Resource Materials:</strong></p> <blockquote> <table cellspacing="10" width="517"> <tbody> <tr> <td><img src="http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:pSN62sbOy-zT2M:http://images.barnesandnoble.com/images/27360000/27367480.JPG" height="54" width="37" /></td> <td><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Disrupting-Class-Disruptive-Innovation-Change/dp/0071592067" target="_blank">Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns</a> by Clayton Christensen, Curtis W.
