Workshop Description:

Habits of both personal and professional practice are a catalyst for continuously improving your craft as a teacher and feeling confident and in control of your life. Join the authors of Habits of Resilient Educators (Corwin Press, 2024), to engage in an interactive experience around a framework of 9 habits of practice that meet modern educators where they are: employed in a field at the intersection of mundanity and sainthood. With guided activities participants will apply practices from the research based habits. Participants will:

  • Examine the habit of establishing and upholding high expectations for all students, across all areas of teaching.
  • Explore biases and academic identities that influence teaching practice as well as student learning experiences.
  • Learn strategies to proactively approach feedback experiences with a purpose, engage intentionally with others, and apply feedback.
  • Recognize connections between feedback, self-efficacy, and impact on student learning.
  • Examine the connection between prioritization skills and teacher agency. Recognize common challenges (initiative overload, lack of positional authority), root causes, and indicators. Learn and practice responsive prioritization strategies.
  • Identify root causes of negative influences. Learn skills for navigating causes effectively (norms, communication skills, sharing responsibility for student learning, etc.).
  • Ground learning in personal goals to enhance your well-being, cultivate agency, and attain utmost impact on student learning.

Outcomes:

Understand how habits from the book's framework (Habits of Resilient Educators), when practiced with consistency, support teacher’s efficacy, personal well-being, and ability to manage the changes and complexities of contemporary school environments with success.

Understand how the habits of clarifying your purpose, navigating negativity, upholding high expectations for all students, prioritizing amidst a sea of initiatives, and getting and using feedback support teachers' professional expertise, cultivate agency, and enable high learning outcomes for all students.

Learn strategies for building capacity by practicing the habits described in the workshop at regular, consistent intervals for continuous improvement and optimal success, as well as how these strategies are enhanced when guided by collaboration with an instructional coach or peer collaboration group.

Teachers are more likely to experience high self-efficacy when they routinely practice self-regulation strategies such as seeking help or support, setting goals, and orienting their work towards mastery, or engaging in personal learning (Zee & Koomen, 2016). Teacher self-efficacy may have a reciprocal effect on both teachers’ and students’ feelings of well-being and personal accomplishment (Bandura, 1997; Goddard et al., 2004). Together, resilience and efficacy contribute to one's comprehensive bank of psychological capital, a contemporary term for a collection of skills that research suggests can be proactively developed to nurture thriving, happy individuals and organizations (Avey et al., 2011). We drew on research and experiences with highly effective teacher practices in the areas of equitable instruction, assessment for learning, effective PLC structures, utilizing data to inform instruction, and collaboration practices to instill meaningful connections between personal habits and professional practices. As a result, we derived the conclusion that the nine habits described in the book (several of which are described in this workshop) are the most likely to improve educator performance in today's environment and ultimately impact student learning.
