Travel Information for Red Rock Great Teaching Retreat (click link for travel details)
The retreat facilitators will provide structure and guidelines to help assure effective use of retreat time, but you and the other participants will decide which issues are most important and relevant to discuss. Together, we will pursue a quest for the ideal of the "great teacher." The Red Rock Great Teaching Retreat is based on the seminar model of the National Great Teachers Movement,* founded in 1969 by David Gottshall. This movement continues to grow with workshops, retreats, and seminars held across the United States, Canada, and other parts of the world. For more information about the movement, follow the web link at the end of this page.
Dr. Gary Parnell (Ephraim Education Center, Utah State University) will serve as Director of the Red Rock Great Teaching Retreat. He has been directing workshops, retreats, and seminars based on the Great Teachers model since 1991. The Retreat Coordinator, Dr. Tom Cunningham (Southern Utah University), has been collaborating on such events with Dr. Parnell since 1997. Both have participated in leadership training directed by movement founder David Gottshall.
At the Red Rock Great Teaching Retreat, we will have great food, great conversation, and even some free time for a little fun in the beautiful red-rock country of southern Utah. You may decide to extend your stay over the weekend so that you can spend more time in the area, perhaps visiting a national park. Zion Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and the north rim of the Grand Canyon are nearby.
We hope you will join us for this professionally enriching and rejuvenating experience.
SPACE IS LIMITED, so REGISTER NOW to reserve your place at the retreat; then send a check or money order to secure your registration by Friday, January 17, 2014.
