New Course Helps School Leaders Use Data

Evans Newton Inc. (ENI), a provider of professional development, coaching, and school transformation for K-12 districts, today announces a new course called the “Instructional Leadership Academy & Institute.”

Delivered in a blended model of on-site and virtual professional learning, the Instructional Leadership Academy & Institute helps educational leaders and their leadership teams to lead a conversion to data-driven, 21st century instruction.

Through this three-module course, participants will learn how to conduct collaborative observations of classroom instruction, called learning walks, to improve teacher effectiveness and satisfaction, and reduce turnover. Participants will explore how to use data from the Learning Walks and other tools and resources to monitor student progress and drive continuous improvement, addressing 21st century skills and the CCSS. Participants will also form local Communities of Professional Practice to reinforce best practices for transforming teacher-led classrooms into dynamic, student-centered learning environments.
