Leading the Induction Process to Support Quality Mentoring

Aug. 6, 2020; 9 am - 3 pm at FEA

Presenter: Emil Carafa, Coordinator of Professional Learning, FEA; Vicki Duff, Coordinator of Professional Learning, FEA

Fee: $149

Induction programs serve as critical pathways for educators as they enter the profession. The role of an effective instructional leader, such as principal, assistant principal, director, supervisor and teacher leader constitutes a valuable human resource for schools as they induct new members into the profession. "Fullan (2001) stated that sustained success is never just one special event, meeting, or activity; rather, it is a journey of recursive decisions and actions." Numerous studies indicate that the challenges faced by new educators need to be supported by professional learning to support and foster skill acquisition for all instructional leaders.
