Maintaining your Leadership Credibility 

November 5 | 12:00pm – 1:15pm PST

Do your teachers and staff trust you? Do they see you as one who is supportive of their development? Are you passionate about your role in the school system? Lots of questions that all relate to your credibility as a leader. Building on the evidence of teacher credibility, we will explore ways to expand your leadership credibility.


Virtual Visibility and Social Presence 

November 12 | 12:00pm – 1:15pm PST

People notice where you put your body. Your presence communicates importance and value. How can you maximize your virtual visibility and social presence such that teachers, students, and family members “see” you? Learn from other leaders who have developed a strong presence in their schools, even from a distance.



November 19 | 12:00pm – 1:15pm PST

Pricing: $59 per person

Improving instruction and maximizing impact are primary responsibilities for school leaders. The question is, how can we spread highly effective approaches to teaching and learning around a school? One solution has been micro-teaching. In this session we explore micro-teaching, allow for practice of this approach, and develop plans for using this tool to improve learning outcomes.


Coaching Instructional Improvement 

December 3 | 12:00pm – 1:15pm PST

Pricing: $59 per person

What types of feedback help teachers change and implement increasingly effective approaches to instruction and assessment? What times of coaching are ineffective? We’ll review several coaching frameworks and practice analyzing instruction and developing coaching plans.


Supporting Parents to Support Learners 

December 10 | 12:00pm – 1:15pm PST

Pricing: $59 per person

We are not asking parents to become teachers. But we do need to forge a new partnership with family members such that their children are learning. We’ll focus on effective parent education that builds the knowledge and skill of family members to support the efforts of the teachers who provide instruction for their children.


Developing Leadership Mindframes 

December 17 | 12:00pm – 1:15pm PST

Pricing: $59 per person

The Mindframes for Leaders guide decisions that we make. They are habits that will serve us well, long after the pandemic. In this session we explore each of the 10 mindframes and learn from leaders who have challenged themselves to strengthen a specific mindframe. These mindframes, or ways of being, are based on the Visible Learning research.
