Transforming School Cultures through
November 12 & 13, 2010
What an amazing two days of professional learning! Our first experience of partnering with CASE was outstanding! And Rob Bocchino is truly a person with expertise, wisdom ... and heart! The model used ... adding a coaching component ... proved to be very successful. Participants were grouped into teams. Each team had either a CSDC or CASE facilitator/coach. Coaches worked with their individual teams, facilitating in-depth learning during the 2 days. Each coach will have three future meetings or conference calls with their team: one in December, one in January, & one in February.
Some comments I heard from participants include:
This truly was a shift in thinking about how we provide and support professional learning. Educators who attended the conference gained new insights into the way they view their work, the way they view the people they work with, and the way they view themselves.
Thanks to everyone who helped design and plan this conference and to the coaches who worked with participants. We have created a powerful model for professional learning that could have an impact on future professional learning experiences.
