Description:
WestEd is sponsoring a facilitators' institute for people who support mathematics PD leaders. The institute will support participants to use a new set of case-based leadership development materials, Learning to Lead Mathematics Professional Development(LLMPD). Materials have a goal of supporting the development of leaders' skills, sensibilities, and long-term capacities to design and implement quality mathematics professional development. Rooted in video of mathematics professional development, these materials consist of seven modules that contain videos, agendas, and support materials. Modules address some of the key issues leaders face in designing and facilitating mathematics PD such as managing discussion, using teacher explanation to promote mathematics content knowledge and attending to access and equity.

The Facilitators' Institute will be held in Denver, CO, on June 4-7th. The institute is designed to provide an overview of the LLMPD materials and prepare participants to use these materials to support the development of teacher leaders and others leading mathematics professional development. The target audiences for this institute are educators who wish to use these materials to support the development of leaders of mathematics professional development. District curriculum coordinators, mathematics coordinators, mathematics project leaders, and those charged with preparing teacher leaders will find this particularly useful.
