Creating a Vibrant Faculty Culture

John Heaton May 28, 2011

Presented at:
SCL Conference 2011


Creating and maintaining a healthy faculty culture is key to sustaining student performance over the long term. It is the single, strongest, difference-making factor over which you have direct control. This seminar will examine what faculty members, department heads, principals, and headmasters can do to improve the teaching cultures of their schools. It will examine the importance of two key stability indicators: predictability and support, and those hard-to-get at questions of continuing faculty development and evaluation. This seminar will approach the topics in a way that is productive for teachers and administrators.
