Instructional Leadership in Action

Build a roadmap to support great teaching with new School Leadership Institute

by UWCEL on May 27, 2016


Creating a plan for the year to support teachers can be daunting. School leaders need to answer many important questions: What are specific ways to support teachers? How can they provide professional learning opportunities that go beyond ratings and checklists? What's the best way to set up an environment that is supportive and conducive to performance improvement?

The Center for Educational Leadership’s new school leadership institute "Ready, Set, Go: Your Roadmap to Supporting Great Teaching" provides school leadership teams with answers to these important questions and offers a roadmap, processes and tools to support and accelerate great teaching.

The series moves from the macro (schoolwide PD planning) to the micro (targeted feedback for individual teachers) and gives school leadership teams an opportunity to turn their specifc teaching challenges into a practice-ready improvement plan. Events include:

  • Creating Effective Goals for School PD and Teacher Practice (Sept. 21-22, 2016) - Institute
  • Reflecting on the Roadmap (Nov. 30, 2016) - Webinar
  • Providing Targeted Feedback to Grow Teacher Practice (Feb. 13-14, 2017) - Institute

For the best outcome, we encourage districts or schools to send teams (principals, assistant principals, coaches and teachers). Participants can register for the entire series or for a single institute.

For more information about the event and to sign up, please check the event website.
