Join us for a webinar on what’s working—and what more can be done—to bolster districts’ ability to support teacher leadership through effective partnerships.

June 2nd, 2017
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT

Teacher leadership is widely understood to not only improve classroom practices by promoting peer-led professional development, but to also create positive teaching climates and increase educator retention. One way that districts can increase their capacity to support teacher leaders is through partnerships with outside organizations that can provide guidance, pedagogical content knowledge, and other resources that foster teacher leadership.

This highly interactive online learning event will include participant-led discussion on existing configurations for teacher leadership and how districts and outside organizations can work together effectively.

As a result of their participation, webinar attendees will:

  • Examine different ways that teacher instructional leadership can manifest in schools and districts
  • Consider how districts can foster conditions that enable teacher leadership
  • Engage in a discussion about participants’ needs/concerns on how to best support teacher leaders

Who Should Attend: School district leaders; specifically chief academic officers, heads of curriculum and instruction, and heads of teaching and learning; those who support teacher professional learning and may have a role in facilitating partnerships with organizations outside of the district who can provide capacity to support teacher development.

This event is co-sponsored by REL West at WestEd and the Center for the Future of Teaching & Learning at WestEd.
