Moving Teams Forward to Increase Student Learning

Dr. Brandon Doubek | @DrBrandonDoubek
Founding Partner, Creative Leadership Solutions

Collaborative teams often struggle with what data to use in various teams in pursuit of the ultimate goal of effective school collaboration—improved classroom instruction. While collaborative teams in the past have been proficient with analyzing quantitative data, these data have not always provided the most immediate feedback to increase student performance. The most effective use of data utilizes multiple forms of qualitative and quantitative evidence that requires redefining data for use in teams with more time spent on solving problems with actionable outcomes than identifying deficits in learning. In his keynote, Brandon will focus on moving teacher, building, and district teams forward to authentically increase student learning through differentiated instruction by focusing on intentionally-aligned data and effective, research-based practices. 


How Do Schools Get Better?

Dr. Brian McNulty  |  @bamcnulty
Leadership Expert

There is a simple answer to this question, but it is not simple to do. This session will present what we have learned over the past 10 years from working with urban, suburban, and rural schools across Ohio. Using the new Ohio Standards for Principals framework, explore how schools should address each student’s well-being and academic success, including the development of social-emotional learning in schools. Specific guidance will be provided to teacher-based teams and building-leadership teams in leading this improvement.
