Instructional Leadership: Creating Practice From Theory
Leaders are often told they need to be instructional leaders because this type of leadership is supported by research, and can have an enormous impact on student learning. Although instructional leadership is one of the most researched forms of leadership, very little practical insight into how to implement it exists, and many leaders struggle to put it into practice. Peter DeWitt, Ed.D. will take the research behind instructional leadership, and dive deeper into six areas that he found is crucial to practices that lead to instructional leadership.
Participants will learn about the research supporting instructional leadership
Participants will learn why credibility plays an important part in our ability to be instructional leaders
Facilitators will engage participants in the six areas that make up instructional leadership which are implementation, collective efficacy, student engagement, instructional strategies, focus 4 learning and evaluation of impact
Participants will learn about implementation science and the way it impacts their ability to be instructional leaders
Participants will be expected to engage in reflective practices to help them understand how instructional leadership plays a part in their roles in school by using a framework for learning which will be provided to them during the session
