Snapshot: In this webinar, Karen Hume will help you develop the 5 good data habits that lead to an evidence-based culture of inquiry, continuous learning, continuous improvement, collaboration, and accountability. Data’s real power is in the habits and routines you and your staff develop to harness it.
Learn how to engage your staff in a series of simple processes that will help you get results from your data. Find out how to create a culture where teachers routinely consult the evidence of student learning, ask astute questions when that learning isn’t happening, solve problems, make adjustments in their actions and approaches, collaborate openly, trust their colleagues, and focus relentlessly on improving student achievement and engagement.
