1. Location, location, location.
Valentine’s weekend? In Napa? Amazing! Spend the day being inspired with learning and collaboration. Enjoy the beautiful wine country in the evenings. It’s the perfect destination for fun and learning!
2. Low cost, hands-on learning
All three days consist of two, two-hour sessions allowing attendees to "dig in deep" and really get to know their topic and build resources to use immediately. Morning sessions are repeated in the afternoon so that attendees have two different opportunities to attend a workshop. All for $159!
3. Small Presenter to Attendee Ratios
CUE Rock Star events are built so that there is one presenter for every ten attendees and the events sell out at 60-70 attendees. This allows participants to get hands-on support and learn directly from knowledgeable educators.
4. Time for Collaboration and Networking
We purposely start late, end early, and take extended lunches so that all attendees have ample opportunities to collaborate and network as part of learning community. A continental breakfast and a delicious lunch are also provided each day!
5. It’s not your grandma’s PD
Professional learning for educators often consists of being “talked at” for hours on end with little or no interaction. At CUE Rockstar Napa, you’ll find no stand and deliver presentations. Be prepared for a brief instructional session and then plenty of time to work with support! You’ll be able to explore the tools and strategies you’re learning about and leave with something you’ve created! Also, everyone learns from each other at Rockstar. The smartest person in the room is the room!
