2017 ASCD Conference on Educational Leadership
ASCD Empower18: The Conference for Every Educator
2018 ASCD Conference on Teaching Excellence
Join ASCD and Boston College's Lynch School of Education for an interactive event about redefining education to address the whole child and, ultimately, the whole person.
Whether or not your school uses a standards-based report card, grades should be based on student achievement and grading practices should support student motivation and learning. This institute will explore grading policies and practices that support these purposes.
How do we create a school environment that is ripe for instructional coaching, rich feedback practices, and effective teacher leadership? We “till the soil,” creating a climate in which reflective dialogue, rigorous metacognitive tasks, and deep thinking rule. A culture of reflective practice, as outlined by best-selling authors Pete Hall and Alisa Simeral in their new ASCD book Creating a Culture of Reflective Practice, consists of four essential fundamentals:
· Strong relationships and clear roles and responsibilities of the leaders
· Clearly communicated expectations
· Regular celebrations and calibration practices
· Aligned goal-setting and follow-through actions
With the vast education inequities that have existed for centuries, all that is known about how students learn, and the predictions regarding the world that our students will face tomorrow, using a traditional one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning is educational malpractice. Built on the foundation of leadership and school culture, the presenter’s redesigned learning experience fundamentally shifts the teaching and learning paradigm to one that is personal, is grounded in evidence, leverages technology, transforms the spaces in which learning occurs, helps educators grow professionally, promotes collaboration with the community, and, ultimately, ensures the sustainability of the system as a whole. Based on the presenter’s new ASCD book Learning Transformed: 8 Keys to Designing Tomorrow’s Schools Today (coauthored with Thomas Murray), this institute will dissect these eight keys, which each serve as a puzzle piece for redesigning the learning experience. Learn how to unlock tomorrow's schools so that today's modern learners leave ready to create new industries, find new cures, and solve world problems.
