How to Identify “Next Steps” in Growing Your Instructional Leadership Practice

Recorded: April 21, 2016 (52 minutes)

Giving every student the best possible learning experience must be a top priority for principals. But to do so requires a strong grasp of instructional leadership and a constant drive to get better. It’s a difficult journey and school leaders often struggle with finding a clear path on how to take their practice to another level.

In this webinar, CEL Associate Director June Rimmer shares six key strategies for improving instructional leadership practice and she introduces the 4D™ Instructional Leadership Growth Continuum, a new research-based leadership tool that describes what it looks like to improve one’s practice as an instructional leader from a novice level to that of an expert.

The webinar includes a sample coaching conversation based on the 4D Growth Continuum.
