iamNeXT this first section of the program, participants undergo in a series of interactive & intimate discussions that allow them to identify their needs for critical thought development, professional fulfillment, the opportunities that exist in their community & fields of professional knowledge. iamNeXT seeks to analyze the various emotional, psychological, & cultural aspects that comprise the a learning experience & the expectations of the professional workforce.  As a result, participants will increase their understanding of the motivating factors behind their choices & explore the alternative options to create new learning methodologies that foster critical thought. 

This section of the program introduces the facilitator & counselors who will be working with the participants for the duration of the program. The format used in conducting iamNeXT will include round table discussions, presentations by both participants & facilitators, use of surveys, & breakout sessions.

NeXTLab is designed to engage and introduce the opinions, expertise & the creative vision of each participant to develop new teaching methodologies, classroom tools & experiences. By identifying their underlying beliefs, networks, attitudes & goals through a set series of questions posed by the facilitators & counselors, participants will be able to create a “blueprint” of their path towards the creation of their own critical thought project. 

This process will also give participants deeper insight as to what attitudes & skills are crucial to succeed in this ever-changing 21st century. Participants will be distributed a survey & Part III of the program NeXTRev will be shaped based on participant answers & demonstrated shared interests. The training format for this learning experience includes “rapid-fire” Q&A periods, breakout sessions for discussion and debrief, & the use of surveys.

NeXTRev is the final workshop component of the program. It is designed to encourage collaboration & guidance among participants, facilitators, & counselors as well as foster participant’s professional growth to be applied to the teaching projects they are developing. Counselors will impart professional 30 minute to 1 hour workshops on their fields of expertise as well as conduct their own exercises.  Participants will be separated into groups & will rotate through the workshops they would like to attend.  With the intention of keeping the workshops small & personal, as well as allow every participant to interact with the counselors. 

NeXTUp is the final component of the program. During this segment participants will debrief & discuss the major takeaways & learning components gained through the the program & give quick presentations on the projects or ideas they developed.
