Our leader learning track provides every leader with the knowledge and skills necessary to take a balanced approach that enables everyone in their organization to thrive in creating new approaches to learning and refining current practices.
Educational leaders often feel they are faced with the choice between using innovative leadership methods—such as design thinking and transformational practices—or reverting to traditional authoritative methods. As leaders we yearn for more authentic and engaging methods to engage a teacher’s creativity and engagement, and simultaneously ensure that teachers are facilitating maximal academic and 21st Century learning gains and progress for every student.
The Lead Learner program provides every leader with the knowledge and skills necessary to take a balanced approach that enables everyone in their organization to thrive in creating new approaches to learning and refining current practices. This two-day session walks leaders through several processes for developing classrooms, departments, schools and systems that focus on extensively enhancing student learning over time. Using the latest research in school and executive leadership, cognitive and improvement science, and curriculum and instruction, this session presents leaders with practical approaches and tools to move their organization forward.
The Lead Learner program consists of a two-day Foundation Series. Educators that are interested in additional professional learning opportunities should consider the Coaching for Impact program.
DAY 1 focuses on strategies that enable students to develop ownership over their own learning. These strategies include developing routines for inspecting performance, developing dispositions for handling setbacks, and tactics for giving and receiving effective feedback.
DAY 2 focuses on unit and lesson design to establish routines that build student ownership over their learning and develops and applies core academic content knowledge and skills.
