About This Event


ALL SESSIONS ARE EASTERN TIME AND 1.5 HOURS. Time Zone Converter

Description:

At PRI, we’ve mused that “Research” is our middle name. It’s such an important part of who we are, we might say it’s a core value! In this session, Derek sits down with PRI’s Research Director, Rita Dykstra, for a conversation about how research is done, what makes good research good, challenges our field has faced in studying what works, and solutions we have our eye on to keep Prime Programs moving forward. 

Goals:

This session will explore inspiration for change, make note of the importance of collaboration and story, and serve as a reminder for all of us we are the authors of our own tale as it interweaves with the tale of all the lives we touch.

Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe at least one method that helped the guest speaker find inspiration.
  • Relate their own experience to that of the speaker.
  • Integrate shared principles into their own Prime For Life presentation.
