The Power of Collective Efficacy — How Educators’ Beliefs Impact Student Learning

August 5, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm EDT

“Collective teacher efficacy is greater than three times more powerful and predictive of student achievement
than socioeconomic status. It is more than double the effect of prior achievement and more than triple the
effect of home environment and parental involvement.” (The Power of Collective Efficacy, Donohoo, Hattie
and Eells)

What our December 13 & 14, 2018 participants said about the experience: “This was one of the most valuable
professional development events I’ve been to in a long time. The design and facilitation of the two days was incredibly
powerful.” “Now I see there is a direct correlation between adult collaboration and student achievement.” “Collective
efficacy is crucial to school improvement and student success.” “This is the key! I have a number of new leadership
strategies I can use to coach my district forward.” “This feels like the “right stuff”.
