Introducing the first NAATE School Leader Program, July 2014 March 6, 2014
As a response to the demand from our School Partners, we are delighted to announce the launch of our School Leader Summer Intensive Program, to take place July 14th through July 16th at the Yale School of Management in New Haven, CT.
This short two day session is open to those in leadership positions in schools that currently have Teacher Fellows enrolled at NAATE or have had NAATE Teacher Fellows in the past. The session is designed with two goals: expand participant knowledge and understanding in areas of practice that are relevant to school leadership; provide school leaders with a deeper understanding of the pedagogy and content of NAATE.
The NAATE School Leader Intensive will be delivered through the same pedagogy as the NAATE Teacher Fellow program, the case method of instruction. The program is comprised of case sessions in both Teaching & Learning and Supporting & Leading. Cases will be tailored to the needs of school leaders and will represent several modules of the NAATE coursework: Teaming, Leadership, Interpersonal Communications, and Pedagogical Content Knowledge.
All participants will be required to participate in all program sessions. Each case discussion will require pre-program pre-reading and small group discussions during the program. Participants will have an opportunity to work alongside fellow school leaders from across the country to discuss and analyze cases that explore real problems of practice and challenges facing educators and leaders
While short in duration, The NAATE School Leader Intensive promises to be a powerful learning experience for individuals serving in formal leadership roles in schools. The program will provide a time to engage in facilitated discussions on daily practice, a time to reflect, and an opportunity to gain insight into current relevant research essential to leading high quality schools.
