It's hard to carve out time during Board meetings for "director education." The board agenda is typically pretty full and not to downplay the importance of education, I worry that the meeting agenda gets diluted. Here might be a few other ideas to approach this issue:
1. Set up a separate session for director education if this is something that many members of the board would benefit from.
2. Identify a really good/concise introductory reading for them and send it along for their reading. Maybe follow up a few months later with another one. Build familiarity and competence throughout the year.
3. Set up a webinar/seminar or refer them to a webinar/seminar that covers the topic. There are many wonderful educators out there, its just a matter of finding the right course that hits on the points you see lacking in your directors.
