Central Office Academy
In 2016-17, TASA will offer our second academy exclusively for central office administrators. Participants will meet four times during the school year in Austin, and will engage with experienced leaders and network with peers from across the state. Experienced leaders will facilitate job-embedded learning around the role of central office to support future-ready learning organizations. Leaders with proven results will share their unique perspectives in building a shared vision for a student-centered culture.
A Rural Schools Initiative: Integrating Visioning, T-TESS, & Neuroscience to Improve Student Learning
Part of 21st century learning is understanding how the brain actually works. This year's Rural Schools Initiative Academy is focused on working with educators to design tomorrow's learning for yesterday's brain. The brain we have is the only one we get; trade-ins aren't available! Teachers will learn to design more effective instruction and principals will become more aware of instructional principles to look for when conducting observations under the T-TESS.
Engaging the Next Generation
Engaging the Next Generation is designed as a sequel to Engaging the Net Generation. While the "Net Generation" provides a framework for teachers to use digital tools for student engagement, the "Next Generation" concentrates on teachers creating and curating digital resources for student engagement.
Transformation requires us “to do things [we] have never done before — not just get better at what [we] have always done.”
