The presentation is geared towards Teachers, Administrators and System Leaders who are about to embark on the development of collaborative structures. The presenters will provide a practical and honest discussion of the systemic and interpersonal challenges that must be navigated to produce successful reform. The conversation will highlight successful implementation strategies, professional development requirements, key first steps, data collection tools as well as other structures necessary for successful implementation of collaborative practices. Mark and Shawn have collective experiences with implementing collaborative reforms at all levels of the education system. It is our hope attendees will learn key areas necessary for successful implementation while engaging in meaningful conversation. Together, they have navigated the challenges of “polarity” that emerge when system reform begins to impact school vision and direction.
