Who benefits most from the institutes?

Over the years, we have found that teams who benefit the most from the Lectio approach and who make considerable strides in their work during the three days and in the weeks and months that follow typically demonstrate some key characteristics:

  1. They are part of a reading campaign, even if in the very initial stages
  2. They have a designated leader who can convene multiple stakeholders
  3. They feature cross-sector collaborations that go beyond those whose day-to-day work is squarely focused on literacy
  4. They have a consistent meeting structure
What happens after we secure an institute? Is there any advanced preparation?

There is some brief advance preparation for the institute, which we will outline upon confirmation. Most importantly, we will hold a mandatory webinar or conference call (depending on your context) with the institute participants in the three weeks leading up to the institute. During this conversation, we will review the institute’s design, discuss the information teams need to bring, and answer any questions participants may have.

Can you gain professional development credits by attending an institute?

At this time, we do not provide any credits for attending our institute. If you need proof of attendance, please be in touch.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept checks. Once accepted for an institute and have signed a contract, we will send an invoice with payment instructions.

What is your cancellation policy?

We do not provide refunds on contracts for on-site assistance; we simply work with clients to modify the timeframe for services, as needed and to accommodate evolving circumstances and strategic planning.
