Hi, this is a Teaching & Learning Collaborative podcast – a faculty development resource at the Monterey Institute of International Studies in Monterey, Ca.

This episode features a presentation by Dr. Beryl Levinger, Distinguished Professor of Nonprofit Management here at the Monterey Institute. Dr. Levinger’s areas of expertise include Nonprofit and NGO Management; International Education; Organizational Development; as well as Program Evaluation and Project Management.

Dr. Levinger is also the director of the Development Project Management Institute (DPMI). Currently offered 3 times a year, DPMI is a 3-week immersive professional training program which provides participants with a solid set of skills and tools for designing, assessing and leading change-oriented development programs around the world.

DPMI students learn to build high performing teams, integrate an array of project management and facilitation techniques, and to foster strategic partnerships as they design innovative solutions for the common challenges facing the international development field.

We spoke with Dr. Levinger on April 11, 2008. Her presentation titled “High Performace Thinking: What can we do to foster it?” is part of our TLC series of workshops and discussions focused on developing a shared understanding and best practices of a distinguishable “Monterey Way” pedagogy.
