Connecting Best Practices with Great Leaders | Westminster, CO

Keynote Speaker Robert J. Marzano, Ph.D

Leadership for the Next Generation of School Reform Thursday, 8:00 am – 10:00 am Westminster Ballroom In Colorado and beyond, public educators are deeply engaged in the implementation of major reforms ranging from educator effectiveness to new state standards. Initiatives like these have the potential to positively impact student learning in a significant way, and it’s critical that district and school leaders have the tools necessary to spearhead this important work. Extensive research on education leadership has converged to form a unique view of how school and district leaders can facilitate the next generation of school reform. In his presentation, Dr. Marzano will outline five levels of school reform that, when implemented, result in a school being better positioned to meet its desired outcomes. Included are practical and specific strategies that you can immediately implement in your district. You’ll walk away with a clearer understanding of the potential of education reform and your role as a leader. Dr. Robert Marzano is cofounder and CEO of Marzano Research Laboratory in Colorado. A leading researcher in education, he is a speaker, trainer, and author of more than 30 books and 150 articles that include Leaders of Learning, The Highly Engaged Classroom, and District Leadership That Works. His practical translations of the most current research and theory into classroom strategies are internationally known and widely practiced by both teachers and administrators. Dr. Marzano received his doctorate from the University of Washington. BOOK SIGNING: CASE Book Store 10:00 am – 10:30 am Westminster Ballroom IV Foyer

Effective leadership involves the extent to which staff feel empowered to make decisions and feel free to experiment and take risks. Robert J. Marzano

Delivery Format Definitions

th Annual CASe Winter Leadership Conference

Each breakout session is designed using one of these specific learning formats. To help you decide on your breakout session choice, the format is identified for each session on the following pages. •

CASE STUDY: A systematic way of examining a single instance, program, initiative or event, by collecting data, analyzing information, and reporting the results. The presenter explains how a program was designed and implemented in response to a particular challenge or issue, then shares results, pitfalls, successes, and lessons learned from the experience. The presenter provides examples of processes that participants can transfer to their projects to better serve their own communities.

COLLABORATIVE DIALOGUE: This conversational format encourages meaningful dialogue, purposeful and collaborative thinking, and positive inquiry. Sessions give participants the opportunity to ask direct questions of the expert, as well as the opportunity to give input on the specific issues addressed.

• DEMONSTRATION: A presentation to demonstrate how things are done and to showcase a specific teaching technique, leadership skill, product, or materials. • LECTURE WITH INTERACTION: Oral presentations intended to present information or teach participants about a particular subject. A lecture is generally one-way communication used to convey critical information, history, background, and theories. Many lectures are visually engaging and give opportunity for listeners to ask or answer questions during the lecture and/or at the close of the session. •

PANEL PRESENTATION: A forum for a group of scholars, experts, knowledge leaders, or government representatives to discuss specific pedagogical policy, practice, or research issues from a variety of perspectives with alternative solutions. Moderator allows time for Q&A following the presentation.

From parental notification and student issues, to employee misconduct and implementation of new state laws, it’s critical that you have a clear understanding of what the hot legal issues are and how to best navigate them. CASE has assembled a panel of expert attorneys who will share their perspective and insights on these and other issues. You’ll walk away with not only increased knowledge about what topics stand to legally impact your school or district, but also with practical strategies to know how best to handle these tough situations.
