Overview of Pre-Conference Sessions: March 29th

1. Leadership in Focus: Barry Dequanne

This workshop is designed for both experienced and aspiring leaders and will focus on strategies related to developing a range of leadership skills, transitioning into different leadership roles related to situation and position, and considering the elements of successful educational leadership. The key focus areas will include creating a positive and productive organizational culture, developing mutually beneficial relationships, promoting clear and transparent communication, thinking and planning strategically, and assuming a healthy and proactive life balance.

2. Instructional Coaches Retreat: Matt Hajdun

Are you currently an instructional coach in the AASSA region? Are you interested in becoming an instructional coach in the future? Are you a Curriculum Coordinator or Director of Teaching and Learning that works directly with teachers or instructional coaches? Does your work include observing teachers and students with the goal of enhancing professional practice and student learning? Do you support teachers in instructional planning? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this AASSA Instructional Coaching Retreat may be right for you!

Retreat Goals:

enhance the international professional community of coaches through networking and sharing of models/resources

  1. enrich our collective professional practices through short presentations

  2. explore research around best practices for instructional coaching

  3. engage in professional dialogue about our coaching by sharing videos of our own

coaching conversations with coachees

  1. and other goals defined by participants/interest

The focus of the retreat is built around building the network of coaches in Latin American and to

share resources relating to instructional coaching (feedback tools, protocols, observation templates, etc). The goal is NOT to build a coach’s capacity in content areas (ie- Writer’s Workshop).
