This session is designed to help teachers develop their skills to improve the quality of professional learning for teachers. Team leaders, instructional coaches, mentors, and teachers who want to learn more about effective professional learning should attend. You will leave this session prepared to take action and create tangible changes through three areas of focus: 1. The Foundation for Professional Learning: School Culture, 2. Designing Professional Learning, and 3. Measuring the Impact. This is a highly interactive session. Participants will have opportunities to dig into the materials and numerous opportunities to share with others in the room. Participants will understand the qualities of effective professional learning and have an opportunity to “grow” their leadership skills. With the use of visual prompts and handouts, teacher will engage in processing activities such as making observations, drawing conclusions, and reflecting on practice, throughout the session. They will focus on growing their teacher leadership skills by using NNSTOY’s “Change Protocol” to prepare them to apply the learning to an action plan.
