Instructional Leadership: Creating Practice From Theory
Monday, July 20th: Keynote (8:30-10:00)
In this session, Peter DeWitt, Ed.D. will present his research on instructional leadership. Participants will take a deep dive into the six distinct parts of instructional leadership: implementation, focus on learning, instructional strategies, student engagement, efficacy, and evaluation of impact. This session will not only focus on the what and the why of instructional leadership, but will also use implementation science to support district and campus administrators, instructional coaches, and teacher leaders in considering the how in improving student learning.
