COVID-19 has created numerous challenges for schools, but it has also demonstrated what we have always known: that international educators are creative and resourceful in continuation of their goal to provide equitable, rigorous learning opportunities—regardless of learning environment—for ALL students. As schools are reopening and adjusting to the new normal, sustaining a Standards-Based Learning System (SBLS) is critical, and will not happen by chance. It requires a plan.
This NESA Networked Learning Series on SBLS is an opportunity for school teams to learn, reflect, and share strategies. The emphasis will be on curriculum, instruction, assessment, and reporting. Since it will be delivered virtually, the program allows large school teams in their school locales to work together.
This offering is not a repeat of the January 2020 SBLS Summit in Muscat, Oman. It is an important extension of that conversation that will help teams dig deeper, reflect on the current context, and work together to sustain their SBLS.
Participants will earn a NESA Certificate of Completion.
The components of an SBLS will be addressed in 5 modules across 10 sessions.
Each module will contain:
- An overview of the component
- Continuum for team reflection
- Questions for guiding team reflection and discussion
- Readings and Research
Each module will span two sessions. The first session will be a 1-hour overview of the research underlying each component. Each team will then reflect and discuss using the guiding questions and continuum provided. The second 1-hour session will be for sharing and discussion across schools.
The series will culminate with a Summit in early spring on Disciplinary Literacy.
School Teams (Applicable to: Directors, Principals, Directors of Teaching and Learning, Department Heads, Instructional Coaches)
All sessions: 3:00-4:00pm GMT+3 (Athens, Greece time)
