Hampton - School administrators and teacher-leaders are invited to attend a Leadership Symposium with Columbia University Teachers College professor and author Dr. Ellie Drago-Severson on Tues., Nov. 15, 2016, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at EASTCONN’s Conference Center, 276 Hartford Turnpike (Route 6), Hampton.
Drago-Severson will present “Leading for Adult Development: Effective Strategies for Supporting Capacity-Building in Schools, Districts and Organizations.”
Educators will explore the challenges that practicing and aspiring school leaders and principals face in education today, with a focus on approaches to giving and receiving feedback, as well as building cultures that support individual and group growth, reflection and transformation.
“Research shows that if we support adult learning in authentic ways, student learning will increase,” Drago-Severson said. “The question is, how do we do that? I work with superintendents, principals, assistant principals, teachers and teacher-leaders … to transform their systems.”
Drago-Severson is a professor of Education Leadership and Adult Learning and Leadership at Teachers College, Columbia University.
