We have made many changes to InterLEAD Connector™ over the past couple of years.
Are you using it to its fullest potential? Are you interested in finding out more about InterLEAD Connector™?
Come along to learn more about using InterLEAD Connector™ to strengthen teacher inquiries and reflective practice, and design your appraisal processes to be time efficient and effective.
Connecting Appraisal with Professional Learning, Reflection and Teacher Growth™
What is InterLEAD Connector™?
InterLEAD Connector™ goes beyond being a storage facility to save evidence for Teacher Certification. It’s a tried and tested, robust teacher development system fuelling performance, providing performance snapshots and focusing teachers on continual improvement. InterLEAD Connector™ works and is user friendly because New Zealand teachers have designed it for New Zealand teachers.
InterLEAD Connector™ nurtures habits, practices and behaviours underpinning learning and improvement. Over 500 Schools and Centres are using InterLEAD Connector™ with more than 10,800 teachers tapping into its unique design.
Ask yourself the following questions:
Is our current appraisal system fueling performance?
Evaluating performance and developing performance are not the same things. Developing talent, not evaluating it, has become the 21st century organisational imperative. For example, there’s a considerable difference between a pool of potential teachers to employ and a pool of talented potential teachers to employ. There are significantly fewer teachers in the latter category and because everyone is competing for them, you’re not guaranteed to get the talent you want. InterLEAD Connector™ accelerates teacher development significantly (and you can use it to evaluate teacher performance too if you wish).
Does developing teachers as highly effective self-directed learners interest me?
Becoming masterful at self-assessment is the key to becoming a highly effective self-directed learner. Teachers must be actively self-assessing their practice – not relying on someone else. They must be making judgments about their practice and setting meaningful goals based on those informed and insightful judgments. InterLEAD Connector™ has built into it, multiple platforms to expedite teachers’ ability to become highly effective at self-assessing teaching practice and framing up the right goals for them.
Do I want our teachers to go deep?
Rigorous doesn’t mean onerous. Whilst becoming meta-cognitively introspective isn’t easy, InterLEAD Connector™ simplifies deep work for teachers. Just three examples include:
- If short on ideas, InterLEAD Connector™ provides 120 research-backed potential goals and or inquiries to dig into.
- Teachers move from setting goals to setting challenging goals – and monitoring themselves against progress.
- Teachers access Goal/Inquiry Planning templates; templates to structure deep reflective journaling; and a place to create Goal/Inquiry Evaluations. These have been designed to ensure teachers create professional journals – not recounts or diaries.
Do I want our teachers to lead their own Open to Learning Conversations on their teaching practice?
Using InterLEAD Connector™ teachers undertake focused deep work (or the homework) – the preparation needed to confidently lead analytical, challenging and critical conversations on their teaching practice. The reality is that Open to Learning Conversations on teaching practice do not successfully occur without teachers having developed prior critical awareness and insight.
Does our Appraisal System meet all statutory requirements?
InterLEAD Connector™ is constantly updated and aligned to provide you with peace of mind.
If any of these angles interest you, you seek more information and have questions, or you are just curious, we look forward to meeting you.
