Focus on the Core: An Introduction to Instructional Rounds

Event details
September 27th, 2012 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Instructional Rounds provide a means of gathering evidence related to a pre-defined problem or challenge that a collaborative team is interested in addressing. Having its basis in the field of medicine, many have found this process to be effective in efforts to bring about change in their schools.  This webinar will be led by members of the New Jersey Network of Superintendents, a community of practice that has successfully used instructional rounds over the last four years to enable participants to take a clearer, deeper look into the instructional core of educational practice.  In the process, participating superintendents have sharpened their own lenses for looking in on instruction, and have learned new disciplines and practices to apply to their own efforts of increasing the instructional focus and effectiveness in their schools. 

In this live web seminar:

  • hear directly from educational administrators how instructional rounds have influenced their work as instructional leaders focused on achieving equity and excellence in K12 public education; and
  • learn about the purpose, essential elements, and potential rewards of using instructional rounds to get a clearer picture of what’s actually taking place in the instructional core in your district’s schools.
