What matters most in raising student achievement? Research identifies collective efficacy—the shared belief that what we do really matters—as the number-one factor. When teachers believe that, together, they can positively impact student learning, it results in a number of productive patterns of behavior: deeper implementation of high-yield strategies, increased teacher leadership, high expectations, and a strong focus on academic pursuits. Join us to learn more about what collective efficacy is, why it's important, and how to foster efficacy to ensure equity, promote well-being, and enhance public confidence in education. 

Participants will:

  • Understand what collective efficacy is and why it’s important
  • Learn about the effect size research that demonstrates factors that influence student achievement
  • Gain insight into how collective efficacy beliefs are formed
  • Identify the positive consequences associated with collective efficacy and the negative effects that occur when staffs do not share a sense of efficacy
  • Know the enabling conditions that help collective efficacy to flourish
  • Examine ways to foster efficacy beliefs through leadership practices
