This leadership course is designed for program leaders (directors/assistant directors) from center-based ECE programs and we encourage you to enroll with members of your teaching team (lead teachers, teachers, teaching assistants, etc). This course provides leaders with foundational knowledge about research-based practices for instructional leadership, organizational change, and program improvement. The course introduces concrete job-embedded professional learning strategies for leaders to apply with their staff to improve teaching and learning in their programs. The course orients leaders to an evidence-based framework for program quality, including using data to support intentional planning, establishing collaborative routines that promote a culture of continuous learning, and the role of instructional leaders in promoting high quality inclusive early childhood curriculum and supportive relationships with families. Through hands-on activities coupled with reflective exercises, participants will identify a problem of practice related to quality teaching and learning at their program, develop an improvement plan, and take steps with their staff to put the plan into action. Note: this course meets live through zoom with some items to read or engage in on your own time between sessions, including virtual learning modules in the StrongStart platform. After you register you will receive a course schedule with more information about where and when to access those self-study materials.
