Innovation and Transformation Services
We believe that true and meaningful shifts in practice are achieved with a transformational approach to professional development that considers the whole person, including their beliefs, behaviors, and ways of being (the 3B’s). All of our services are designed in alignment with this core belief and our framework for sustainable change.
We believe that communities spark meaningful change and can support you in increasing collaboration and building collective efficacy. We help schools to integrate community-building into their ongoing practices through: building online learning communities for teachers and providing Parent/Guardian Workshops based on school needs.
Transformational coaching considers the whole person, including their behaviors, beliefs, and ways of being. Without attending to all the ways adults can grow, leaders may not be making the impact they seek.
We offer a variety of in-person and virtual active learning workshops where educators are encouraged to share ideas and practice new skills in a hands-on, real-world setting. Participants will engage with research-backed, highly engaging materials and walk away having developed tangible next steps to utilize in their school communities.
We help school leaders develop and articulate an instructional vision. At Educate, we are committed to empowering all members of a school community to maintain or improve learning environments that provide equity and access for all. Our program is provided through workshops, cohorts, and/or individualized coaching.
Our virtual courses are learning opportunities tailored and strategically designed to help educators attain new skills. Learners are able to interact live with both a cohort and the facilitator in a community setting or individually in a self-paced setting.
[Describing partnership with Educate] “Number one is impact and outcome. Number two is the relationship as far as knowing the coach is invested in the school community… …We have a partnership where we’re working it all together. I see that happening. It would feel like there’s a void if we did not have Educate because you are part of the fabric now.”
“We continue the relationship [with Educate] because we’ve done a lot and we’ve grown a lot, but they still need that level of support that can walk them through things, and think through things with them. And you know, our Educate coach has also been really good about differentiating based on needs. With one of our teachers who wanted to grow leadership, the coach really helped her think about the process. Why do you want to do this? What are the parts? What is your vision for it and how can we flesh that out… …Engaging the learner in authentic, meaningful work is what good professional development looks like. That means you’re not preaching. That means the person who’s doing the talking is doing the learning, and [educators] should be doing it. That means you want to make it fun. It means consistent differentiation. I think that’s what good PD looks like. So that people are not like, Oh, my God, when is this over?”
