Event Details

Inservice learning? Staff development? Professional learning? Professional development? Terms change but the function is the same: the school leader is responsible for the organizational learning of their building. Research is clear: in organizations where the adults are learning, the students learn more. In this two-hour session, we will explore how adults best learn, how to make the learning stick, and how you, as a school leader, can best prepare and facilitate.

Developing adults has characterized the work of Thomas Van Soelen for over a decade. His professional learning and leadership coaching in the areas of instructional strategies, learning communities, critical friendship, leadership development, and teacher evaluation are known in several states and countries. His collaborative practices, quick wit, and deep experience make for an engaging and meaningful learning experience.

Van Soelen was most recently the Associate Superintendent in Decatur City, GA. There he began writing and has been published in the Journal of Staff Development, Principal Leadership, Education Week, School Administrator, NAESP, National School Board Journal, and Phi Delta Kappan, as well as two full-length books (Routledge and Solution Tree).
