Build collective teacher efficacy that gets results.
A meta-analysis of 26 research studies found collective teacher efficacy to be strongly correlated with increasing student achievement (Eells, 2011). Collective teacher efficacy can be fostered by engaging teams in effective collaboration However, all too often teams come together and for informational meetings that are neither inspiring nor effective. More effective teams may engage in productive working groups and other times in professional learning teams. We support teams with a balance of both productive work and professional learning. We call this combination a Collaborative Learning Team. These Collaborative Learning Teams provide teacher with job-embedded professional learning that is relevant, timely, and actionable. Collaborative Learning Teams have higher levels of collective teacher efficacy and make a stronger, positive impact on student achievement.
