Educator creates a change plan that will guide the implementation of a new approach.
This demonstration of competency can be tied with the implementation of the plan created by the educator in the “Teacher-powered: Create a Plan” micro-credential, while considering the feedback that was gained in the “Teacher-powered: Engaging Stakeholders” micro-credential.
Educators must create an innovation configuration map that outlines the conditions to be met for successful implementation of the new model.
An innovation configuration map helps teacher leaders successfully plan and communicate a change in program. Educators break down their plan into key components and implementation levels: minimal implementation, some implementation, acceptable implementation, and ideal implementation.
The following is an example of a portion of a map focusing on implementing a new teacher induction program: (To see example, please download the requirement doc below)
Below are six strategies that can support efforts to effectively implement a new idea or approach. Ideally, all six would be implemented, though for this micro-credential you will only be asked to reflect on three.
This book provides strategies and a research base for how to lead educational change. In an increasingly complex educational landscape, Fullan describes how to lead effectively under messy conditions. Chapters 3, 4, and 6 are particularly helpful for change leadership.
The authors cite evidence and explore possibilities for education if professional capital is increased for teachers and ways for this to happen. Emphasis is placed on the need for teachers’ decisional capital. Chapters 5, 6, and 7 are helpful for leading change.
This study emphasizes the importance of peer sharing for improved student outcomes.
To earn the micro-credential, you must receive a passing evaluation for Parts 1 and 3 and a “Proficient” or higher for each component in Part 2.
Activity Description (300-word limit):
Your artifact submission will be assessed based on the following rubric. You must earn a “Proficient” or higher score on this portion of the total submission in order to earn the micro-credential.
As you have crafted and moved toward implementation of this plan, which three of the following strategies have you used to help all stakeholders learn about, implement, refine, and improve the project?
Choose three of the strategies/questions to reflect on your undertaking so far:
