Deming Institute Pre-Conference Session on Education and Quality Learning

Oct. 16–17, 2014, in Los Angeles

Published: Tuesday, June 17, 2014 - 14:36

Join David P. Langford for a two-day interactive session and discover the true potential and future of education in our country. Shatter existing beliefs with this proven approach to improving the quality of learning and leading the next generation of students in flexible learning environments that inspire passion in students and educators alike.

The focus is on improving learning and leading organizations using the Profound Knowledge principles of Dr. W. Edwards Deming and emerging brain research. Dr. Deming’s foundational principles provide a timeless framework for understanding small and large systems.

This two-day session is for educators, administrators, and business leaders interested in making a difference in education and quality learning. You will explore leveraging strategies that identify what to do, not dictating a model to follow. This powerful approach is about a philosophy and a strategy; a way of thinking that will change the way you look at learning and education.

We constantly hear that resources are limited, time is in short supply and improvement never seems to work, no matter how much money or how many incentives are devoted to the problem. This session will explore how you can focus on changes which result in sustained, proven, systemic improvement in learning.

Please join us at the Airtel Plaza Hotel in Van Nuys, California, for this pre-conference event, and the fall conference that follows, to continue the learning and hear the success stories of educators who are using this approach.

Langford Quality Learning originated in 1986 as a process to improve student learning in David Langford’s high school computer and business classes. While studying the works of Dr. W. Edwards Deming, Dr. Myron Tribus and others, Langford began to apply the quality learning philosophy, theory, tools, and processes to teach students to assess and monitor their own progress and improve intrinsic motivation for learning. He then began to focus on improving systemwide learning by working with the staff to identify, define, and overcome barriers that hindered the students’ path of life-long learning.

In 1992, David Langford founded Langford International Inc. Since then he has devoted his research and work toward developing and applying quality methodology and concepts to improve student learning, school leadership, business processes and procedures, and to promote partnerships that strengthen learning organizations. The concepts of quality Learning, just-in-time Learning, exponential learning and the self-managed classroom have emerged out of these efforts.

Langford was featured in the film Quality... Or Else which aired on PBS and has appeared in other documentaries including the Deming Library Vol. XXI. He is the author of Tool Time for Education, Tool Time for Business, and Tool Time for Healthcare and coauthor of the book Orchestrating Learning With Quality. Langford has created a number of new quality improvement tools such as: Consensogram, Code of Cooperation, If... Then, Integrative Analysis, Capacity Matrices, and Morphing.
