Training Trainers to Build Excellent Leaders

Our Commitment to You

You know your stuff, that is why you were selected to present to HOSs on Thursday. We have designed a set of guidelines for this work and our commitment to you is to walk alongside you and help you develop your content. As we prepare for the summit, we want to ensure that participants have a consistent, highly engaging learning experience across all learning sessions. We will teach you the basics of Accelerated Learning, a dynamic learning methodology used by teachers and business leaders around the world! You will learn how to design meaningful learning experiences, develop prework that will get your participants ready and excited to learn, and create meaningful activities that will engage your learners.

Understanding Your Role in HOS Success

We want your presentations to be interactive, rather than sit and get. We would like to help you engage the HOSs through your presentation. We are going to do that with a series of resources designed to help you create interactive and engaging lessons.

  1. The first video below is an overview of the lesson design process. You will learn how to use the framework, as well as some tips and tricks for presentations.
  2. The second video below will outline the process of building effective performance objectives. You will learn how to craft objectives that speak directly to the learner.
  3. The third video below is an overview of how to design prework. Prework is optional, but if you think it will help prepare your learners, we would be happy to send it out for you ahead of the training.
  4. The last resource can be found here. It is an overview of engaging activities you can use with learners. The left hand column are activities that can be used in a face to face environment. If you need any help visualizing these ideas, please reach out to Brandi Maynard. She would be happy to help you at any part of the lesson design process.

Booking Travel & Accommodations

As you book travel for this event, please note that the Summit will officially kick off on Monday, January 11th with a social welcoming event that includes food, fun, and connecting! We will be joined by Allison Cleveland, Todd Goldthwaite, our CEO Nate Davis, and others to help welcome you all to Herndon! We will offer appetizers and drinks at our social event on Monday night. Summit sessions will begin early Tuesday morning, January 12th and will end mid-day on Friday, January 15th.

It is recommended that you fly into Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) which is only a few miles from the K12 Corporate Offices.


We have reserved a block of rooms at a hotel as we would like everyone stay at the same location. We have arranged for a social event at the Sheraton Reston on Monday evening from 6pm-9pm and this would save everyone the hassle of traveling to a different location. We have arranged shuttle service from the Sheraton to the offices and back each day and breakfast is provided.

Meeting Location

The meeting will be held at the K12 corporate office. The address to the K12 corporate office is below.
