(Encino, CA) February 16, 2017 — Insight Education Group today announced that its National Educational Leaders’ Workshop (NELW) will take place in San Diego, CA, on March 9 and 10. As part of Insight’s Empowering Educators to Excel (E3) initiative, the event was created to present district leaders, principals, instructional coaches, teacher leaders, and teachers from districts nationwide with the latest research and best practices that they can use right away to support educators’ growth and impact student achievement.
NELW attendees will meet and learn from members of E3’s nationwide networked improvement community as well as other leaders from around the nation who have experienced real success with three key levers:
1) Launching instructional leadership teams that execute on improvement goals that lead to student achievement;
2) Building successful instructional coaching programs that are aligned to instructional priorities and provide meaningful feedback; and
3) Implementing a PLC model, Supporting Teacher Effectiveness Project (STEP), based on a positive deviance approach that empowers teachers to find bright spots and replicate them.
“As a district leader, the Workshop will provide our instructional team with a unique, deliberate opportunity to learn and investigate the latest practices in what really works in improving student achievement,” said Nate Davis, the Assistant Superintendent of Schools for the Metropolitan School District of Decatur Township. “I look forward to sharing what’s working for us and taking back what we’ve learned from others. The opportunity to develop a ‘network in practice’ is a wonderful chance to both provide and receive high-quality feedback and ideas in today’s ever-changing educational landscape. The Workshop will provide the time, space, and expertise to accomplish this.”
Dr. Michael Moody, the co-founder and CEO of Insight ADVANCE, will deliver the keynote, “Rethinking PD So It Actually Works.”
Panels will include “Equity, Equality, and Excellence: From Policy to Practice,” moderated by Jason Stricker, CEO of Insight Education Group with panelists Dr. Sharon Contreras, Superintendent of Guilford County Schools (North Carolina), Superintendent Dr. Demond Means of Clarke County School District (Georgia), and Holly Maria Flynn Vilaseca, Board of Education Member of District 6, Houston Independent School District (Texas); and “STEP into Effective PLCs: Empowering Teachers & Improving Practice,” moderated by Dr. Anissa Rodriguez Dickerman, senior vice president of Insight Education Group.
