Webinar: Central Office Leadership in Principal Professional Learning Communities - The Practice Beneath the Policy

Recorded: September 17, 2014 (1 hour)

Join the University of Washington Center for Educational Leadership (CEL) and Dr. Meredith Honig for a webinar as part of the Leading for Effective Teaching Project supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

This webinar is the fourth in a series of webinars that CEL is hosting related to how central offices can best support principals as instructional leaders. 

The webinar, Central Office Leadership in Principal Professional Learning Communities: The Practice Beneath the Policy, features Dr. Meredith Honig of the University of Washington who shares her team’s research on what principal supervisors do when they lead principal professional learning communities in ways that support principals’ growth as instructional leaders. She discusses tools and strategies districts can use to make these practices a reality in their systems.

We encourage principals and their supervisors to watch the webinar together and discuss how they can partner to improve the effectiveness of principal professional learning communities in their district.
