Course Description:

Ever wondered how one man, Walt Disney, created a Magic Kingdom?  Join us and register to learn, dream, explore, design, and wonder. Understand how to  create a classroom that provides your students with these same feelings. This educational CEU course is designed to do just that.  In this three (3)CEU course we explore how Walt Disney embodied these traits and how he inspired others around him to help build his Magic Kingdom. We will then take these ideas of creativity, storytelling, leadership, innovation and guest service and apply them to creating classroom magic and even the bigger picture of crafting the schools of tomorrow.


This course includes blended learning and an onsite experiential learning experience field trip to Walt Disney World.  The course will consist of discussions, lectures, interactive activities, research investigations, media/literacy projects, teamwork and collaboration between classmates and instructors.  It will consist of a master class onsite each day.  The days include 4  hours, in park personalized tours, interactions and learning opportunities with park cast members and other Disney related professionals. Each day activity will help lead participants to a final project that will conclude this course’s requirements. 


The overall goal of this course is to provide participants with instructional methods, concepts, strategies and activities that they will be able to apply to their classroom and schools immediately.  Collaboration, curiosity, critical / design thinking, and storytelling are all important 21st century skills that not only do our students need to master but we as educators can continue to improve upon also.  This course will help participants do both and all through the same lens that made Walt Disney and the Disney Company so successful and innovative.
