Schools do not improve one teachers or one principal at a time. Teams are a system's unit of change. They improve through teaming and through effective collaboration. This notion is now front and center with John Hattie's latest VISIBLE LEARNING research that cites collective teacher efficacy (1.57 ES) as one of the greatest influences on student learning.

Impact Teams create the culture and conditions for every teacher every day to answer the question: "What is my impact?" Impact Teams re-energize teacher teams to believe in their collective capacity to make a difference, to immediately and significantly increase not only student learning but also teacher learning. And what is unique in this approach is that it is strategically aligned to classroom practices that develop student self-efficacy as a learner as well.

Learners attending this institute can expect to:
  • Define the Impact Team model and unpack the four sources of efficacy
  • Understand the components of effective teaming and the research that underpins the Impact Team Model
  • Enhance teacher clarity with curriculum, assessment, and the 5 core formative practices
  • Learn the attributes of quality evidence
