The 5D+ Teacher Evaluation Colloquium is a place to learn and share with other districts that are using the 5D+ Teacher Evaluation Rubric.
Possible discussion topics include giving effective feedback to teachers, collective bargaining agreements, and problem-solving your district’s obstacles to a research-based implementation.
Bring your hardest questions and your best practices and be ready to share in an Open Space Technology* format.
Open Space session topics at past colloquiums included:
- Supporting and differentiating learning for principals.
- How to prioritize ongoing teacher training – diverse needs.
- Consistency in scoring / calibration.
- Tools that generate formative conversations.
Here are some things that participants had to say on reflection/evaluation forms at past colloquiums:
- These were much richer conversations than I anticipated. I appreciated having the experts in the room sharing (CEL folks and those in the field).
- We set the agenda so our needs were met.
- This is the first time we’ve been able talk with other districts as practitioners. It really helped to hear what is going in other districts.
- I will leave today with an increased understanding and focus on our next steps in our district.
- We are all learning together!
The colloquium will be helpful for central office, school and teacher leaders. Light morning snacks and a boxed lunch will be provided.
*Open Space Technology (OST) is a process for hosting meetings, conferences and other events that allows participants to efficiently group themselves to seek and share information, questions, and experiences, and to engage in problem-solving and other group activities, without preparing a formal agenda in advance of the event.
