Presentation

Gallery Walk

InTASC Standards
Description: The question of how to bridge preservice teacher preparation through induction and ongoing professional learning is a key topic in the national conversation on teacher development and retention. Teacher educators have advocated for stronger induction models aligning the gap between preservice teacher preparation and in-service professional learning in support of all teachers and subsequently, their retention (Anderson & Olsen, 2006; Cochran-Smith, 2003; Darling-Hammond, 2000; Feiman-Nemser, 2001; Smith & Ingersoll, 2004). In this presentation, the presenters will share “The Bridge,” a model developed to connect preservice teacher education professional learning plans (PLPs) with school district PLPs, making the transition from preservice to in-service a seamless process. Supporting the ongoing growth and development of all teachers, while focused on student learning, is a goal of both the provider and school district personnel.

Presenter: Dr. Samuel Taylor, Area Program Manager, Division of School and District Effectiveness, Georgia Department of Education

Suggested audience: EPP Heads and Program Coordinators, Assessment Directors/Coordinators, and Faculty
D3 Orientation for New EPP Administrators Description: In this informational session for new EPP administrators (deans, associate deans, directors, etc.), participants will receive an overview of the mission of the GaPSC, program approval processes and protocols as well as the certification process to include application and program completion requirements and procedures. In addition, ample time will be provided for Q&A.

Presenter: Bobbi Ford, Program Approval Specialist, GaPSC and Melina Ljuljanovic, Certification Evaluator, GaPSC

Suggested audience: EPP leaders in their first three years in a leadership role, or new to the state (deans, associate deans, directors, and program coordinators)
D4 Accessing Your Data via gapsc.org Description: GaPSC-approved program providers have access to a wealth of data via the agency’s secure portal at www.gapsc.org. In this session, participants will learn how to retrieve data that can help inform decision making and program improvements.

All Georgia public school teachers have access to SLDS through their district’s student information system (SIS). You will leave this session with a link to the SLDS demo site which will provide you with the ability to allow your pre-service teachers to experience SLDS as a classroom teacher.

Suggested audience: EPP Faculty, Program Coordinators, PL Coordinators
EdL1 Principal Pipeline: The Role of the University

Description: “Pipeline” is a metaphor suggesting a continuous flow, without interruption, from beginning to end. Historically, Georgia has never created a principal pipeline. What are the various components of a principal pipeline, who are the actors who can influence the pipeline, what local and state level decisions must be made to support a vibrant principal pipeline, and what are the consequences if policy that supports a pipeline is not in place? Program providers have an opportunity to significantly impact the pipeline, but often don’t position themselves to make an impact. Participants will have an opportunity to review and comment on a draft Georgia Leader Pipeline Logic Model that is currently under development.

Presenters: David M. Hill, Ph.D. Director of Special Projects, Georgia Professional Standards Commission

Suggested audience: Educational Leadership Faculty, Deans, RESA Directors, and School District Leaders
EdL2 Leader Dispositions: The Neglected Piece of the Preparation Puzzle

Description:
Human resources directors have long known knowledge and skills are important, but not sufficient for leader success. The often neglected third ingredient is dispositions. With support from the Wallace Foundation, Dr. Hooper has developed a dispositions instrument that uses a 360° approach to examine leader dispositions. Learn about the development and use of this instrument. Georgia is about to embark on development of a state leader dispositions instrument; Dr. Hooper’s work will help inform the work group that will begin development work in the next few months.

Presenter: Mary Hooper, Ph.D., Associate Professor, University of West Georgia

Suggested audience: Educational Leadership Faculty, RESA Directors, School and District Leaders
EdL3 Preparing School Leaders to Implement the Georgia Department of Education’s Systems of Continuous Improvement Description: The Georgia Department of Education has created a continuous improvement framework based on extensive longitudinal research in Chicago led by Anthony Bryk. The framework consists of five essential supports that influence student learning and achievement. Leadership is the driver of the other four supports. Without strong leadership, school improvement is difficult and cannot be sustained. Participants will get an overview of the framework, learn how GaDOE uses the framework, and will examine what leader candidates must know to effectively implement the Systems of Continuous Improvement.

Presenter: Dr. Samuel Taylor, Area Program Manager, Division of School and District Effectiveness, Georgia Department of Education

Suggested audience: Educational Leadership Faculty, RESA Directors, School and District Leaders
EdL4 Quality Measures: A Continuous Improvement Tool for Educational Leadership Programs

Description: Quality Measures is a collaborative self-assessment process used by preparation programs and their partners as an important tool in a continuous improvement process. Both national and state accreditation processes require program providers to engage in a continuous improvement process so Quality Measures offers a self-assessment that supports such a process. Quality Measures uses a rubricbased protocol that focused on evidence across four program components. Participants will get an overview of these program components, how the process works, and how it might fit in the continuous improvement process required for program approval in Georgia.

Presenter: Cheryl King, Ph.D., Distinguished Scholar/Advisor and Executive Director, Quality Measures Center for Program Assessment and Technical Assistance, Education Development Center

Suggested audience: Deans, Educational Leadership Faculty, RESA Directors, District Leaders
EdL5 Exploring Issues and Needs in Preparation and Practice: A Collaborative Discussion Description: Using structured opportunities for targeted dialogue, participants will identify and explore shared problems of practice in preparing and supporting educational leaders. In this discussion session, issues will be framed using a large and small group protocol toward the aim of seeking and sharing best practice and solutions through collaborative structures of support.

Presenter: R. Ugena Whitlock, Ph.D., President, Georgia Educational Leadership Faculty Association (GELFA) and Department Chair and Professor, Kennesaw State University; Sheryl Cowart Moss, Ph.D., Coordinator for Advanced Leadership Programs, Educational Policy Studies, Georgia State University; Karen Bryant, Educational Leadership Certification Program Coordinator, Clinical Assistant Professor, College of Education, University of Georgia; Anne Marie Fenton, Director, Rules Management and Educator Assessment, Georgia Professional Standards Commission
