ASCD, a global community dedicated to excellence in learning, teaching, and leading, announces two new ways for educators to shape teacher leadership. From now through April 11, 2014, educators are encouraged to participate in the ASCD Forum online via the ASCD EDge® social networking community and in-person at the 69th ASCD Annual Conference and Exhibit Show.
The ASCD Forum starts on January 16 and invites all educators to explore the question, "How do we cultivate and support teacher leaders?” This topic is integral to educators worldwide, and the educator-driven conversation—featuring both online and face-to-face discourse—will explore the thoughts of the education community. Conversations developed through the ASCD Forum will be used to inform ASCD positioning on teacher leadership and teacher support.
The ASCD Forum is accepting educator ideas and feedback on teacher leadership in a variety of easily accessible ways. These include a Twitter chat, a face-to-face session during Annual Conference, and a webinar. Throughout the ASCD Forum, we invite educators to write and comment on ASCD EDge blog posts that align with forum discussion themes.
