New Administrator Academy Course: Evaluating Student Engagement Using the IPI

Course #986

Presenter: Dr. Karen Gauen, Highland CUSD #5

This academy will explain classroom walk-throughs and the use of walk-through data to improve student engagement and achievement. The Instructional Practice Inventory (IPI) is one protocol that can be used to gather “snapshot” observational data about the nature of teaching practices across the school. This academy also provides training to become a coder who systematically observes classes throughout the school, obtaining more than 100 observations of teaching practice during a typical school day. The six categorizations of teaching practices are: active learning/active teaching, teacher-led conversation, teacher-led instruction, student seatwork/teacher engaged, student seatwork/teacher disengaged and total disengagement. Administrators will support teachers as they share this anonymous school-wide data with staff to spark collaborative conversations about student engagement and teacher instructional practices. Workshop is limited to 25 participants.
