The 8 Design Elements of Teacher Retention

October 30, 2019, 12:00 pm PT/3:00 pm ET  hosted by Design Principal Lauren Acree

Teacher retention is one of the most pressing challenges facing schools and districts today. Not only is teacher turnover costly in dollars, it also has costs on student learning. Despite many efforts, there is not one clear approach that can fix this problem.

We believe that there are 8 key design elements to consider at a systems-level when working to improve teacher retention and that understanding these elements in context can help district leaders design effective solutions. In this webinar we will break down three of the eight elements of teacher retention in greater detail:

  • Career pathways for teachers
  • Dynamic recruitment
  • Teacher agency

To learn about these three elements and teacher retention broadly, join the webinar.

October 18th, 2019, 11:30 AM PT This webinar has passed.

You're invited to our virtual book launch party on Friday, October 18th from 11:30 - 12:00pm PT. It'll be a great opportunity to learn more about what The New Team Habits can do for you.

The New Team Habits is a workbook that comes out later this month. The authors created this workbook with schools and educational teams in mind, but is great for any organization that just wants better meetings, projects, and learning on their teams...really, this is a universal desire.

Building New Team Habits: Moving from Theory to Practice

October 8, 2019, 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET  hosted by Senior Design Principal Gabrielle Hewitt and Design Principal Justin Toomer This webinar has passed.

Are you a district or school leader who sets goals year after year, but doesn't know how to build buy-in for those goals?
Do you have an ideal vision for where you want your district or school to be but an unclear process for how to get there?
Are your teachers and staff bought into your initiatives, but you don't feel like the initiatives are changing the organization design of your district or schools?

It may be less of a problem with your goals and existing initiatives and more of an issue with the habits and conditions of your team. In our experience working with hundreds of districts, we've learned that in conjunction with goal setting, it is necessary, and sometimes more important to consider the practices, habits, and identity that your team has adopted. This webinar will address this tension and will specifically:

  • help you think about moving from goals to action through habit building
  • introduce a practical framework to get started with building new team habits right away
  • share best practices for building new team habits

Check out the recording and additional resources here.
