The QPVI Reboot Retreat is a training for facilitators from the IU sites participating in the QPVI program. At this 2-day event participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with each other and compare their Key Components (KC) 1 & 2 results with the goal of discerning what has worked, what had been developed, ongoing challenges to sustain, and solutions to problem solve. We will provide an overview/review of KC 1 & 2, as well as introduce and train in KC 3: the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC), with an emphasis on assessment and instruction. In addition, we will be using the Abbreviated QPVI Master List to stream line, analyze and compare data, as well as share resources.
