Giving targeted feedback is a powerful skill and an important support for helping teachers grow their practice throughout a school year. At this year's Targeted Feedback Institute (October 27-28 in Renton, Wash.), principals, instructional coaches, teacher leaders and central office leaders who supervise principals can learn and practice how to provide the kind of feedback teachers can implement immediately and independently.
The Center for Educational Leadership has been training teacher, school and district leaders in targeted feedback work for the past several years. In this updated version of the institute, participants will learn the characteristics of effective targeted feedback and how to engage in feedback cycles with their teachers that result in improved student outcomes.
Day one of the institute covers the characteristics of effective targeted feedback, the foundations of a strengths-based observation process, the role of an instructional framework and teacher goals/area of focus. On the second day, participants will learn about each step of the feedback cycle and practice giving feedback using this cycle.
The early registration rate for this event – available until August 14 – is $395 per person. For more information about the event and to sign up, please check the event website.
