Managing change is a complex process that all too often starts with fervor but falters with implementation. One of the main culprits of these failed attempts for implementing powerful change initiatives lie in a lack of collective efficacy, loosely defined as a set of beliefs teachers have that the faculty as a whole can do what is necessary to have a positive effect on students. Donohoo (2020) suggest that without collective efficacy, implementation is stifled and lasting change is unlikely.
This session will provide instructional leaders with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to lead change initiatives that stick. As a participant, you will walk away with a Collaborative Learning Team assessment tool that will demystify the characteristics of effective teams and allow you the clarity to more effectively foster and measure collective efficacy throughout your building.
