Not All Directors Are the Same: What Research Indicates About Developmental Stages, How to Individualize Technical Assistance, and the Impact on QRIS

All pre-conference sessions require prior registration. This session will be held at the 2018 QRIS National Meeting.

Leadership matters for sustaining quality practices in the classroom, yet many QRISs do not address measures of leadership. This session explores new research on the developmental stages of directors (novice, capable, and master), addresses methods for individualizing supports, and considers implications for QRISs. Through rich discussion and interactive exercises, participants will learn how to embed these new findings into state systems and work with administrators.

Presented by: Michael Abel and Jill Bella, McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership; Nicole Parks, A-State Childhood Services
