administrative academies

An Administrators’ Academy is a program in which Illinois school district administrators participate to meet legislated requirements for continuous professional development. The academy provides a means of offering opportunities for high-quality professional development. Through the Administrators’ Academy, practicing administrators with differing needs, interests, and schedules may increase their knowledge and skills in instructional leadership.

The Illinois State Board of Education approves the administrator academies that are developed by those state entities who have been granted authority to develop and manage this learning.

The following Administrator Academies are currently scheduled through Illinois Digital Educators Alliance:

    • October 12, 2020
    • 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM (CDT)
    • Online (a link will be sent)

    This course is designed to support educational leaders in the development, evolution, implementation, and promotion of programs and initiatives which will best support students in the future. Through a researched-based and systemic view, participants will identify celebrations and challenges with current district culture and organizational structure and reflect on possible changes. Also participants will deepen understanding of alternative and authentic assessment methods and blended/personalized learning models and reflect on possible next steps for implementation. In addition, participants will explore options for flexible differentiated professional development for staff and examine the role of messaging and community partnerships with focus on positive use of Social Media.

    • October 30, 2020
    • 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM (CDT)
    • Online (a link will be emailed)

    The Effective Use of Technology in Schools course will focus on the evaluation of technology in the classroom and how it can connect to the Danielson model. It is designed to provide administrators with the ability to walk into a classroom and understand how technology is being integrated into the content rather than being a stand alone application. The course will also address effective tools that administrators can use in their daily routine to model effective technology use to help coach their staff and provide information to stakeholders in the community.

    This course will be given Administrator Academy credit in partnership with the IPA.

    Illinois educators can also earn 4 PDHs for attending this event.
