Supporting the growth and development of faculty in this next era of instructional development will be challenging not only for the faculty but also for administrators. It will be imperative for teachers to understand the transformation of learning via the digital arena but it is mandatory that administrators not only understand a) learning theory and it application to the classroom but also, b) how learning theory translates into the implementation of technology into a given classroom.
TCES understands the demands of the state as to observation and feedback; however, TCES has incorporated the instructional delivery associated with technologically developing classrooms. With that in mind, observation and supervision training for principals has been modified somewhat to enable principals to develop teachers that are integrating technology into their classrooms.
Who should take these seminars?
These seminars are applicable to a range of educators that interface with classroom teachers integrating technology into their current teaching. These seminars are available for and can be further customized for:
- Principals and Head Masters
- Assistant Principals
- Content Area Specialists
- Team leaders
- Department heads
- Instructional Technologists
Where are these seminars conducted?
TCES strongly believes that the most effective professional development opportunities for individuals providing feedback and coaching to teachers is conducted on a campus in the district, preferably on the principal’s campus. However, we are flexible and will accommodate any request but it is important to train in the actual situation in which our participants work.
