2015 Catapult Learning Summer Leadership Institute – Scottsdale, AZ
Catapult Learning is pleased to be hosting its 2015 Summer Leadership Institute at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa on June 29-July 1, in Scottsdale, Arizona. The three-day institute will feature a keynote address by Dr. Patrick Forsyth followed by several breakout sessions with seminar leaders from Catapult Learning.
In his keynote address, Dr. Forsyth will engage schools leaders to think about the roles of motivation and trust in school improvement and effectiveness. His presentation will focus on understanding human motivation in school, the role of trust in school effectiveness, and will raise the questions: What is the specific role of school leader? How doe school leaders affect motivation and trust? A professor of education at the University of Oklahoma and co-author of Collective Trust: Why School Can’t Improve Without It, Dr. Forsyth has long been involved in the reform of leadership preparation, beginning in 1984 as Executive Director of the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA). His recent research in the University of Oklahoma’s Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Department has focused on parent trust and also explored work alienation, professionalization, and collective efficacy.
Seminar leaders from Catapult Learning—including Lee Anne Housley, Andrew Ordover, Andrew Kenger, and Jessica Bianculli—will lead several breakout sessions. These sessions will focus on leadership topics such as motivation, school culture, trust, and accountability.
