This workshop was designed because ....

Collective efficacy is the number one factor influencing student achievement and deserves the attention of every educator, everywhere. Collective efficacy is about the overwhelming power that school teams have to impact change when they join together to solve problems.


Collective efficacy is present when educators believe that they are capable of helping students master complex content, fostering students’ creativity, and getting students to believe they can do well in school. Expectations that they can successfully achieve their intended goals results in the confidence, resiliency, and persistence needed to overcome inequities and challenges.


Furthermore, successful educational reforms are defined by deep levels of implementation of what is known to work best in systems, schools, and classrooms. When educators share a sense of collective efficacy it results in deeper implementation of high leverage leadership and instructional practices.


Many system and school leaders are asking: How do we foster a sense of collective teacher efficacy to realize better outcomes for students?

Methodology Used

It is interactive - cooperative learning strategies are utilized throughout and effective literacy strategies are modelled as well.
