Leading the Brain-Based School! Leadership Strategies to Promote Excellent Instruction
Great school leaders provide teachers with effective feedback that helps to improve instruction while knowing the research that is behind it. This workshop will help you to provide brain-friendly, research-based feedback in the key areas of: the Learning Environment, Knowing Students, Planning Instruction, Delivering Instruction, and Assessment. These areas of focus can be adapted to any evaluation model used by your school. In addition to a fast-paced, engaging and interactive workshop, you will leave with concise research-based information that you can provide to teachers as learning resources during post-observation feedback. Practical resources will be provided!

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session😕 As an?added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible?to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session.?Therefore, each?virtually-delivered?workshop?and webinar?will now have?Zoom?s Recording Disclaimer?enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.
Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session:?Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.
- Change your participant name displayed in Zoom (e.g. only use your first name, replace your name)
- Disable your video
- Mute your audio
- Do not communicate via the chat feature
- Do not upload an identifiable profile photo
Please refer to?Zoom?s Attendee Controls?for more information on how to use these features.
