Interested in forming or participating in an educator network?
Attend an upcoming design institute near you!
The Educator Advancement Council (EAC) is hosting a series
of “design institutes” around the state starting in February to support organizations
and educators interested in creating or participating in EAC educator networks
The purpose of the EAC is to ensure all Oregon public school
teachers, administrators and early learning professionals have access to
high-quality professional learning and support – from the time they are
considering the profession to their first teaching job to becoming a school or
district leader. This work will be achieved through educator networks, which
will rely heavily on teacher voice and shared leadership to drive decision-making
and share resources, expertise and equity driven practices across schools and
districts. The EAC will release a Request for Proposals this spring for
organizations interesting in sponsoring educator networks.
The design institutes will provide those interested in
serving as EAC Regional Sponsoring Organizations or being part of an educator
network with tools and practices useful in developing successful networks focused
on system change and continuous improvement and driven by teacher voice. These highly
interactive one-day design institutes are scheduled in 7 locations, allowing participants
to actively experience tools and strategies for supporting educators in a
network. Teams of 3 to 5 from ESDs and school/district leaders and
teachers are encouraged to attend, and will leave with a solid plan for
how to successfully sponsor a network that engages educators in their local
contexts to design, test, and study improvements.
