2013 SHEEO P-16 Teacher Professional Development Collaborative Meeting

Date: 
Monday, August 5, 2013
Event Location: 
The Renaissance Orlando at Sea World
6677 Sea Harbor Drive
Orlando, FL
United States

 

Sponsored by SHEEO, the annual K-16 Teacher Professional Development Collaborative Meeting is an opportunity for SAHE grant administrators to discuss new developments and share strategies in administering the higher education partnership grants funded through Title II, Part A, Subpart 3 of the current NCLB legislation (also known as ESEA, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act). Collaborative members help design the agenda and facilitate discussions within this highly interactive meeting. Unlike the Department of Education’s ESEA meeting, the Collaborative meeting focuses specifically on the concerns of higher education administrators (SAHEs). Recommendations emerging from this meeting guide the SHEEO staff in providing the necessary and appropriate support for the SAHE Collaborative membership.

Teacher Professional Development: Meeting A Critical Need

Presenter: Jean Marie Redeker (KS)
Facilitator: Josephine Hamilton (TX)

The Center for American Progress released a report last month entitled “High Quality Professional Development for Teachers: Supporting Teacher Training to Improve Student Learning.” In addition to making a case for the critical need for ongoing teacher professional development, the report outlines key research findings that link certain professional development program elements to improvements in teacher performance. In this session, we will discuss the report’s findings and how it applies to our work.

Online Professional Development: A National Discussion About E-PD

Presenter:  Mark Bergeson (WA)
Facilitator:  Saeed Sarani (OK)

Digital content delivery systems are increasingly prominent in higher education systems. Can digital solutions such as cloud computing, social media, and video-supported “training” be incorporated successfully into educator professional development programs to increase both reach and effectiveness? In this session, a short presentation of current online instructional approaches will be followed by a group discussion on how online solutions can be successfully built into Title II-funded professional development.

Measuring Effective Professional Development: A National Evaluation Rubric

Presenter:  Saeed Sarani (OK)
Facilitator: Mark Bergeson (WA)

Without data to demonstrate success, it can be easy to dismiss in-service professional development programs as broadly ineffective. We can counter this prejudice by collecting and disseminating effectiveness data about our program. This session will include a presentation on current efforts to collect and report effectiveness data through the National Evaluation Rubric, as well as a discussion around using the results for data-based advocacy of SAHE Title II Partnership Grants.

A Team Approach to Evaluation: The Arizona Model

Presenter:  Maryn Boess (AZ)
Facilitator: Sharmila Mann (SHEEO) 

For the past several years, Arizona has employed a unique “team evaluation” model of program evaluation, where a collaborative group of professional evaluators work together to provide external evaluation to each project and to the entire Title II SAHE grant effort collectively. In this session, we will learn about this highly successful and USDOE commended “team evaluation” approach, as well as the detailed project Logic Models that are developed collaboratively between new project directors and their assigned evaluators at the beginning of a project as a part of the evaluation process.

ESEA Update: Congressional Action on Reauthorization

Facilitator:  Sharmila Mann (SHEEO)

The best opportunity for higher education to continue to be funded for professional development activities through the Federal government is for us to listen intently to the plans of the USDOE and of Congress, and then strategize an action plan over the coming year(s). We need to know both 1) what we are up against, and 2) where we might be able to leverage pockets of support for our work. With current movement in both the House and the Senate on ESEA reauthorization bills, this is an opportune time to examine the current landscape and discuss how higher education can remain an integral part of federally-funded teacher professional development programs.

Open Discussion of Questions and Issues

Facilitators: Elizabeth French (AL) and Paula Gregg (SC)

Participants are invited to share their questions and concerns about the Title II program in this open session.  Topics discussed in previous years span the range of complexity from simple administrative issues to the future of NCLB/ESEA. In addition to peer-to-peer sharing, SHEEO staff will be available as resources in this period.

Session Resources:

Looking Forward:  SHEEO and the SAHEs:  Steps to Increase the Utility of the Collaborative

Facilitator:  Sharmila Mann (SHEEO)

In the final session of the day, Collaborative members will reflect on the various topics discussed throughout the day, revisit areas that may need more discussion, and consider what might be helpful for reaching the aspirations outlined. Participants will engage in a discussion with SHEEO staff on how the national network might better support their work, outlining a plan of work for the coming year.
