Explore Leading in Difficult Times during AACTE’s 2020 Leadership Academy Series
For much of 2020, COVID-19 has forced AACTE and its members to “think outside the box” and reimagine programming. Just last week, AACTE conducted its inaugural virtual event, with educators coming together to receive advocacy training and learn effective techniques for effectively engaging with political leaders. And in keeping with innovating its professional development opportunities during the current pandemic, the association is pleased to announce the 2020 AACTE Leadership Academy Series.
In lieu of the traditional, in-person, four-day training, this years’ experience will offer a series of interactive sessions for attendees. The six-session experience will take place in two parts, with three sessions to be offered this fall, and the other three sessions to be offered during the 2021 Annual Meeting. Under the theme of “Leading During Difficult Times,” the three fall sessions will explore content in the following areas:
October 14 – Addressing Issues in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
October 27 – Collaborative Decision-Making During Crisis
November 10 – Re-Thinking Field Experience
Whether as a town hall forum, guided panel discussion, or exploration of successful case stories, each 90-minute session will provide attendees the opportunity to explore the topics and acquire knowledge to address these leadership issues in a current context. With subtopics including such areas as bridging opportunity gaps and supporting faculty of color, identifying the steps to make and implement critical decisions, and redefining and realigning district partnerships, these sessions will offer insights for both new and experienced education leaders.
In order to allow for greater participation and collaboration, AACTE is offering a limited number of spots for this learning opportunity. Be sure to register early, as this event is sure to fill up fast. AACTE members are eligible to attend all three fall sessions for one low price of $99 per person.
More information regarding each session will be available in the next two weeks. We look forward to you joining us this fall!
