How do we support our mission of fostering deep, self-sustaining and learner-centered educational environments that create capable, engaged students? By crafting impactful professional development for our clients. By incorporating assessment - in the full meaning of what “assessment” entails - into our learning experiences. By using the components of the ARCS framework to lead lasting improvement. By promoting a constructivist approach to learning. By building and nurturing our client relationships.
We believe that professional learning is inclusive and should contribute to the distribution of leadership in a school. To that end, our programs include inter-related yet differentiated learning experiences for administrators, coaches and teachers.
Our long-term professional development programs often include showcases where participants share what they've developed, learned and applied in the classroom. Examples of before-and-after student work may also be featured. The video below captures scenes from a recent showcase where teachers and administrators shared two years of work related to the use of formative assessment and feedback.
