So You Have a Plan, Now What?
Using Rapid Learning Cycles to Move Initiatives Forward
Presented by: Dr. Elizabeth A. City, Director of the Doctor of Education Leadership Program at Harvard Graduate School
Intended Audience: Teams and leaders implementing standards and other change initiatives in Vermont schools
No matter what your educational teams have been working on, or how impressive your implementation plans are, staying focused and understanding how to move forward and learn after the work begins can be difficult to maintain, yet crucial to success.
Many teams in Vermont have been impressed with the book: Strategy In Action: How School Systems Can Support Powerful Learning and Teaching. One of the authors of this important work, as well as other critical and current educational books (Data Wise, Meeting Wise and Instructional Rounds in Education), Liz City is coming to share her expertise in supporting powerful learning. Vermonters are poised to be at the forefront of innovation and improved strategies for making a difference in the lives of our students and actualizing Vermont’s Educational Quality Standards (EQS).
