Teachers' Professionalism, Students' Achievement, and Systemic Change

Summary

Implementation and evaluation of the Rice University Mathematics Leadership Institute (MLI) resulted in lessons learned regarding leadership factors at both micro- and macro-levels of educational systems which impacted how institutional change manifested at targeted schools and districts. Speakers will present evidence of growth in teachers' professionalism (including teacher knowledge, instructional practices, and professional collaboration), comparative student achievement results, micro- and macro-level change factors, and related systemic impediments. Data will be presented to explore the process of change as experienced by MLI lead teachers and directors. Speakers will discuss MLI lead teachers' and directors' impressions as change agents in classrooms, mathematics departments, on campuses, and within districts. Lessons learned through MLI about student success will be shared.
