Overview

Leveraging a feedback and observation process that actually calls educators to improve action is core to instructional leadership. Being able to ensure next steps are taken is a part of the feedback and observation cycle often overlooked and underestimated. This workshop is designed to emphasize a ‘post-feedback’ process that can be a powerful tool for instructional leaders to coach teachers. Instructional leaders will learn strategies to support educators in moving from feedback into action.

Audience

This session is designed for district,  school, and teacher leaders who interface with school-level educators to provide instructional support, training, and leadership.
