Welcome to the Fall 2017 session of the CDI!
You can download the 3 day schedule here.
Wiki: Daily Resources
The CDI uses a wiki to curate our resources and share out our facilitation plan. Please note that facilitators are making changes to this plan up until Day 1 of the session. Feel free to familiarize yourself with the structure of the wiki in advance.
Learning outcomes will (in part) be informed by your participation in the CDI. As a place to start (and to guide our planning), we propose outcomes for the session and for each day.
