ConferenceA Definition

the goal of conferencing and providing feedback
The Goal of Conferencing and Providing Feedback

The goal of the feedback provided during a conference is to improve the effectiveness of teaching and promote professional growth. In pursuit of this goal the feedback provided during a conference should;

  • Be based on descriptive and focused observable data;
  • Provide characteristics of effective teaching;
  • **Promote reflective inquiry and self-directedness to foster improvements in teaching supported by evidence of student learning.
effective feedback
Effective Feedback
  • Teachers welcome feedback that is just in time, just for them, just for where they are in the journey toward expertise, and just what they need to move forward or improve.
effective feedback1
Effective Feedback
  • For feedback to be effective, principals or instructional coaches need to:
  • Clarify the definition of effective teaching;
  • Ensure that teachers understand the feedback;
  • Seek feedback from the teachers about the effectiveness of their formative and summative growth/evaluation efforts.
remember
Remember….

Providing formative feedback or “instructional coaching” is intended to make the principal a partner in the change process. The principal works one-on-one with teachers to make it easier to adopt the instructional methods that can make a difference to student success.

In preparing for the post-observation conference have I…..

….while being very cognizant of the importance of splitting the almost simultaneous process of description evolving into interpretation and correspondingly judgment.

….Carefully thought through the most appropriate supervisory style in which to approach the conference….

….with the end intent being promotion of reflective inquiry and self-directedness to foster improvements in teaching supported by evidence of student learning.
