Hook Center Assembly on Continuous Quality Improvement:
The Heavy Lift: What Continuous Improvement Means to Missouri Schools

December 11, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm, and December 12, 9:30 am - 12:00  pm

The 2019 Hook Center Assembly on Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) will provide you and your team with a unique opportunity to engage with fellow educators, thought leaders, College of Education leadership, and DESE leadership sharing and listening around the theme: The Heavy Lift: What Continuous Improvement Means to Missouri Schools.  The Assembly will allow you to engage a full range of CQI content from national trends and current best practice—to statewide initiatives—to school district improvement efforts—to continuous improvement strategies employed at the school, classroom, and student levels.  If we focus on planning as a process, not just plans as static products, we prime ourselves to evolve and change.

Education Elements is thrilled to be participating in this event and our very own, Anthony Kim, will be leading a keynote and a breakout session.

ASCD Empower19

March 14-16, 2019 Chicago, IL This event has passed.

For decades, education has consumed billions each year for new programs in the hopes of dramatic change. And yet, how we implement those programs is exactly the same; educators continue to work extremely hard, but we rarely change how the organizations operate themselves. How can we better shape our organizations and organizational culture to move our work forward geometrically instead of incrementally? This session will explore six "New School Rules" based on seven years of research on which practices have the biggest effect on how organizations function and how work gets done. The session will provide examples of how other districts are getting it right and provide time for participants to individually reflect on how they can start implementing practices right away.

By Anthony Kim and Keara Mascareñaz.
