*FEATURED SPEAKER* - Garth Larson - Using Assessment as Evidence Gathering When Grading for Impact
Limited Capacity seats available

This session will walk participants through essential elements of assessment design in a standards-based or target-based reporting system. Educators often struggle to view assessments as a method of evidence gathering against standards or learning targets and often look for practical examples to work from. This interactive session will provide examples of how to take learning targets and create assessments that allow for participants to use the evidence from the assessment to reach conclusions on student proficiency. Educators attending this session will have the opportunity to work with other participants and will walk out with sample assessment questions that will help guide their work when they return back to their districts.

*FEATURED SPEAKER* - Jenni Donohoo - Fostering Mindframes: Leadership Practices that Work
Limited Capacity seats available

Entrenched beliefs are often a barrier to quality implementation in schools. In addition to collective efficacy, other mindframes can serve to either impede or support school improvement initiatives. In this session, we will consider Hattie’s Ten Mindframes (how educators think) that inspire powerful impact in schools. We will explore leadership practices that teams can employ to help develop different ways of thinking.

In this session, we’ll identify research-based, efficacy enhancing practices for strengthening professional learning communities and collaboration in schools.

*FEATURED SPEAKER* - Jenni Donohoo - Learning by Observing
Limited Capacity seats available

People often say that seeing is believing and it turns out that they are right! Collective efficacy beliefs are formed based on information obtained from vicarious experiences. Vicarious experiences happen when teams (or individual teachers) gain knowledge or information about a strategy, skill, or approach to improving student learning by seeing it performed by others. When teachers get better, students get better and teachers get better by observing others. In this session, we will explore how to improve the quality of observational learning and examine ways to tap into sources of collective efficacy in support of deeper implementation of evidence-based practices. Key features of vicarious experiences will be shared and participants will consider practical applications for tapping into vicarious experiences as a source of collective efficacy.
