Jun 1, 2020 AA # 1448 Teacher Evaluation Retraining (Domains 2 and 3) Online

Administrators who evaluate teachers must demonstrate a high rate of inter-rater reliability, and communicate evaluation outcomes in constructive and supportive ways. Administrators who evaluate teachers must also recognize and control for bias when conducting an evaluation and determining results. School districts in Illinois must provide professional development to administrators to strengthen these skills on a sustained basis. This course focuses on Domains 2 and 3, and is intended to move administrators who have passed the ISBE evaluator training, and who are very familiar with Charlotte Danielson's 2011/2013 Framework for Teaching, from compliance to competency. This course requires participants to view teaching, record data according to the Professional Practice rubric, and participate in mock evaluation conferences as evaluator, teacher, or observer. Participants will also be expected to have a high degree of inter-rater reliability when they determine a final rating based on the evidence gathered during the observations. This course is one in a series of three courses focusing on teacher evaluator competency requirements.

The cost to attend this training is $200/person. Upon completion of this training each participants will receive administrator academy credit.

Presenters: Marvin Warner, ROE #41 and Annette Hartlieb, ROE #3.
