School leaders face a unique set of challenges and pressures. They are expected to implement major changes, create standards-based schools, and affect positive academic outcomes of students. However instructional leadership is in scarce supply in schools, and no school can achieve the profound instructional shifts required to spur student achievement without school leaders who truly know how to lead. NISL’s EDP Applied Plus and Teaching for Effective Learning series (TEL) build off the research-proven framework and results of NISL’s Executive Development Program (EDP) to deepen transformation within EDP graduates’ schools.
EDP Applied Plus (EDP A+)
The EDP Applied Plus (EDP A+) is for graduates of NISL’s Executive Development Program (EDP). The modular courses take the concepts from the EDP and deepen participants’ depth of learning in that topic while shifting the pedagogical emphasis towards applying the learning in their schools.
