    SUMMARY

    This implementation model operationalizes the four sources of efficacy by building expertise through practice that results in mastery experiences for teams. This is an execution-as-learning process in which teams learn protocols as needed through coaching and modeling. This implementation is authentic, organic, and develops a variety of skills and knowledge in context focused on deepening content knowledge.

    Register Now


    INSTITUTE DETAILS

    Schools do not improve one teachers or one principal at a time. Teams are a system's unit of change. They improve through teaming and through effective collaboration. This notion is now front and center with John Hattie's latest VISIBLE LEARNING research that cites collective teacher efficacy (1.57 ES) as one of the greatest influences on student learning.

    Impact Teams create the culture and conditions for every teacher every day to answer the question: "What is my impact?" Impact Teams re-energize teacher teams to believe in their collective capacity to make a difference, to immediately and significantly increase not only student learning but also teacher learning. And what is unique in this approach is that it is strategically aligned to classroom practices that develop student self-efficacy as a learner as well.

    Learners attending this institute can expect to:
    • Define the Impact Team model and unpack the four sources of efficacy
    • Understand the components of effective teaming and the research that underpins the Impact Team Model
    • Enhance teacher clarity with curriculum, assessment, and the 5 core formative practices
    • Learn the attributes of quality evidence

    SUMMARY

    Taking the Complexity out of Concepts is designed to assist educators in making the shift from a content-based curriculum to a conceptual curriculum. The authors’ aim is to do what the title suggests, taking the complexity out of concepts in learning by providing practical strategies and ideas for teachers that can be implemented in any educational setting.

    Register Now


    INSTITUTE DETAILS

    When curriculum content is shifted into a conceptual framework, facts and skills are seen as layer within a more conceptually driven context. Units are developed and analysed to ensure they are significant, compelling and intriguing for students; therefore, students are involved in learning that has purpose and engages their curiosity.

    Research indicates that one of the benefits of learning through concepts is that "organizing information into a conceptual framework allows for greater transfer; that is, it allows the student to apply what was learned in new situations and to learn related information more quickly"(Bransford, Brown & Cocking 2000, How people learn: Brain, mind, experience and school, p.17).

    Learners attending this institute can expect to:

    • Develop, review and write units, revising and re-imagining curriculum to be structured within in a conceptual framework. 
    • Open up the opportunity for student-led inquiry. 
    • Make learning more meaningful and connected by leveraging the way in which the brain processes information, contextualizing curriculum content.
    • Feel more confidant teaching conceptually.

    SUMMARY

    As our relatively ubiquitous standards-based learning environments intersect with 21st century learning priorities, teachers must take inventory on what assessment practices remain reaffirmed, which need to be reworked, and which can be rethought. While some assessment fundamentals are timeless, there are others that need reworking; they remain relevant, but require reworking to increase both the frequency and sophistication with which these practices are utilised. As well, there are some assessment fundamentals that need to be rethought given some of the shifting instructional priorities. These assessment practices - many of long-standing tradition - need to be rethought given our modern teaching and learning environment.


    Specifically, this two -day session will highlight formative assessment strategies, sound grading practices, assessment design, transparent criteria, and the ways assessment is an integral part of students being more self-regulatory about their learning. This session will be a mix of presentation, discussion, and extended working sessions.

    Registration link to follow soon


    INSTITUTE DETAILS

    This institute will examine sound assessment and grading practices through the lens of 21st century learning. First, participants will come to know why assessment sits at the center of all that teachers hope students will achieve, and which assessment fundamentals remain timeless as teaching and learning modernizes. As well, participants will understand why and how some assessment practices need to be reworked to fit more seamlessly with a 21st century learning environment. Finally, participants will examine which assessment fundamentals need to be rethought given how instructional priorities have shifted.

    Participants can expect to:

    • Understand the sound assessment and grading practices that remain universally relevant in a 21st century classroom.
    • know (and begin developing) the sound assessment and grading practices that must increase in frequency or sophistication to align with 21st century classrooms.

    INSTITUTE DETAILS

    The work of the Adaptive Schools Seminars is to develop the resources and capacities of the organization and of individuals to cohesively respond to the changing needs of students and society. The training not only explores what makes teams effective, but how to develop skills as facilitators and informed group members in informal and formal settings, in small and large groups.

Adaptive Schools is the “how” of professional learning communities: how to behave in groups, how to lead them, and how to facilitate them for improved leading, teaching, and learning.

    Learners attending this institute can expect to:

    • Gain an increased capacity to initiate, develop and sustain high functioning groups. New lenses for diagnosing the stages and phases of group development.
    • Learn skills to move groups beyond consensus to common focus and an expanded repertoire of practical facilitation tools.

    SUMMARY

    The Instructional Agility Professional Learning Institute (PLI) session takes participants back to the core fundamentals of classroom assessment. Rather than creating assessment events that require teachers to stop teaching in order to conduct their formative assessments, the focus will be on the more organic process of infusing assessment experiences into any activity or strategy. Specifically, participants will come to know the two, non-negotiable characteristics that make an activity a formative assessment experience as well as some practical strategies that can be used for assessment purposes.
